This is just a quick update to let you know that I am still here despite my lack of updates over the past two weeks or so. I have done a lot of overtime at work recently and the stress of trying to buy my first house on top of this has rather limited my outings. As a result I haven’t really had much to post up here. However, there are still a few things that I would like to mention.
Firstly, I now have a blog on the local newspapers (Evening Post) website. I hope to use this outlet as a way of reaching people in the local area who might not otherwise seek out information concerning the wildlife surrounding them. Having access to such a wide readership will hopefully allow me to promote the diversity of the South Wales area and encourage more people to get out there and explore it for themselves. I will be starting a series of blog posts there from this week detailing some key locations that are both well known and less well known, focussing on the wildlife that is present that otherwise may be easily overlooked. I will be cross-posting those posts over here as well for my readership here to enjoy. If you are interested in the Evening Post blog itself, follow this link.
Despite not getting out and about much recently, I have signed up to Flickr as a solution to displaying a collection of my photographs. My ultimate intention is to get a photograph up there of all of the regular UK bird species. On top of this I will also be posting pictures of the places that I visit and any other photographs that I am particulalry pleased with. I am already seeing the benefits of the sites expansive community as the number of people viewing my photographs has increased dramatically from previous solutions that I have used. I have added a gadget to the sidebar of this blog which links deirectly to my UK Birds collection. If you want to view all of my photographs follow this link. I will be putting many more photos up over the next few days. Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think. Any constructive criticism is greatly recieved.
