My Wonderful and Varied Neighbourhood.

I didn’t make it back to Wales from my Christmas break in Derbyshire until late on Friday night, which meant I was already four days behind other ‘Foot It’ competitors. David, the other warden from my summer position as a tern warden at Cemlyn Bay, had sent me a text on New Years Day saying […]

My birdrace :)

Well it may seem like a long time ago now, but I thought I should finally get around to telling you about my team’s birdrace. I loved it! Firstly, I got to spend the weekend with my Dad which is always good and secondly, we saw far more bird species than I had ever imagined! […]

You don’t get Bullfinches on Holy Island…

I’ve still got some catching up to do in terms of telling you what I’ve been up to, so let’s revisit the story of Martin Garner (bird ID expert featured in yesterday’s blog)… Martin finished his vivacious talk on finding rare birds and promptly went out the following day with Alan Davies (of The Biggest […]
