  • Blog Post: Frampton Marsh sightings map - 25 November

    Having a play with this as a concept to see if we can get more sightings out more often. Can't commit to daily yet but any feedback much appreciated and if response is high then we'll try and get it up and running. Will also work on my hand writing and guillotine cutting skills too :) ...

    Hi all, Apologies for the brevity of this blog post. I know Toby does an all-singing all-dancing version.

  • Blog Post: Which animal eats the least...?

    Answer: Moths, they only eat holes! *groan* OK, bad jokes aside, I'd just like to take a little time to talk about a really under-rated group of creatures, the moths. Lots of love out there for butterflies, but as soon as you mention moths everyone suggests they just want to eat your clothes ...
