Common Kingfisher on an Urban River

On Tuesday I got up somewhat early, to arrive in Leicestershire for sunrise, where I met up with my friend James Burman. We planned to have a full day to locate, observe and film (or photograph in James's case) his local Kingfishers, which frequent a river in the middle of a fairly busy town. This… Continue reading Common Kingfisher on an Urban River

In the past I used Webs, I believe my website there was looking 'dated' and I no longer do anything… Continue reading About Me

AFON Guest Blog: Here’s to a green 2017!

(My post for A Focus On Nature) For 2017, what I would like is Nature Conservation to be taken more seriously by Councils and the Government.  They need to properly see it as a Universal Problem.  It is not an issue only for a certain class system, region, gender, sexuality, age or level of education… Continue reading AFON Guest Blog: Here’s to a green 2017!

Wind-back Wednesday, to June 2016

I think 'Wind-back Wednesday' should be more of a trend on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and of course, WordPress.  It'll be for those that cannot wait until Thursday (for Throwback Thursday)  #WindbackWednesday or  #WBW  😉 Anyway...  I realised I hadn't updated my blog in a while and I didn't share my completed videos of my reporting… Continue reading Wind-back Wednesday, to June 2016
