  • Blog Post: A Rekindled Love of Bird Watching.

  • Blog Post: Go Green Week.

    It is hard to imagine a time when we had to be stringent on the food we were eating, or a time when you couldn’t just pop in the car to go to the shops. However, as the environment begins to become increasingly affected by the way we live our lives we start to look back on these times with nostalgia...

  • Blog Post: Pied wagtail wonder

    I’ve had a rather entertaining fortnight. Autumn Watch may be over for another year, but something equally addictive has managed to catch my attention recently. Every time I head out in the crisp winter air for a stroll or I layer up my jumpers, coat and scarf to walk to work, I am followed by...
