Not so new blog post also up :lol:
It seems I forgot to post here after my previous blog post went up!
In this blog I share how we account for uncertainty in citizen science data collection for WeBS - as a volunteer on this project I am committed to the highest quality work and thought it was important to share some of what we do to make this data as accurate and comparable as we can.

Visiting friends and family over Easter means this blog post is slightly less Devon and slightly more London but birding in an urban park is a novel experience when you are used to squinting through scopes. Adjusted as the ducks and geese are to humans you can get really quite close up (sometimes you might not always want to though!).

You gotta love a lichen - this is quite a beautiful one complete with contrasting fruiting body. Im going to go as far as suggesting that this could be the best looking lichen you will see all day ;)

Just in case you were worried I was going a little off spec here is a South Devon Wildlife Blog with marine life and birds. I even included a nice map :)

Pipits on the coast is the topic of today - lovely little birds and it is so nice to see the weather improving - don't get me wrong I love seasons but I think we are now done with winter! Bring on the spring!

New blog post(s)!

I forgot to repost my blog link yesterday so today is a double day:

In a new format I am taking a single species profile of a creature - starting with the Song Thrush. I really enjoyed writing this so will probably profile a few more feathered friends over the next month or so.

I have also had a five minute forage for some wildlife in a car park and come up with three bees and an awful lot of garlic:

In today's post I look at the role art can play in improving our understanding of, and appreciation for nature. Featuring some art work from some very talented painter friends of mine :)

Catching up on some blog posts here having been away for a few days.

It was lovely to see the Diplodocus Dippy down in Dorset at the weekend - the intimate setting of the Dorset County Museum gave me a different perspective on this familiar giant. Definitely recommend a visit if it comes near you on tour!

An ode to the bluebell - finally out and blooming https://ithinkisawanotter.wordpress.com ... ls-a-blue/

And a brief glimpse of the first few babies of the year (and no I don't mean the Royals!)

It is amazing how quickly you can build up a long list of birds if you sit and listen first thing in the morning - this blog was inspired by just half an hour of bird watching on a 'local' holiday to Dorset!
