Day 3: Citizen Science

I love a good bit of science. Who doesn’t? So why not be part of it? Citizen science is so easy to take part in; if you’re going to take photos of nature, why not use those photos to help protect/discover more about it? So I uploaded a photo of a bee that I found … More Day 3: Citizen Science

#30DaysWildfowl

This is my video for the 2nd of June, Day 2 of #30DaysWild, filmed at Regent’s Park. The idea was to try and spot as many geese and ducks as possible; it didn’t disappoint.

You can almost be guaranteed to see birds no matter where you are in the UK: cities, countryside, … More Birding in Spring

Restless at 2PM

  For the last few months I’ve been neglecting my subscriptions to BBC Wildlife and National Geographic. They’ve been mounting on the far right of my desk, some still in their plastic wraps, forming a mini-Andes of magazines. Today was the day I decided to deal with the backlog head on, meaning I could clear … More Restless at 2PM
