Natural history diary kept while Tutton was a King's Scholar at Eton, which was awarded the Natural History Prize, 1930-1931. The diary contains notes on occurrences of insects, especially butterflies and moths, and occasionally birds and mammals. From September 1931 the natural history entries mostly cease, and the diary becomes an ordinary record of events. January-July 1932 is a journal of a visit to Italy.
