This blog was originally created as part of my assessment for my Wetland Science & Conservation MSc at Bangor University. The blog posts that I have written so far relate to various field trips I have been on as part of that course.
Now that those assessments are over however this blog no longer serves that purpose.
I could leave this blog as it is and forget about it like many others have, but having enjoyed writing posts and with my new found love for photography this is something that I plan to continue on.
One of the things I have noticed through visiting various places is that many organisations are interested in setting up a blog and using social media in order to advertise what they are doing. Often employing tech savvy graduates.
I hope in continuing this blog I can create something that I not only enjoy but can be used as a portfolio of work to show what I have been doing out in the field as well as my capabilities to write and photograph.
This blog will now move away from being strictly about wetlands to about nature in general with upcoming posts including my recent week long stay on Bardsey Island, moth trapping and my various excursions in North Wales over the coming summer months.
Hopefully in the near future I will upgrade to a better camera from my current four year old bridge camera to a DSLR which will help me take my photography to the next level.
As this blog grows (and I write posts on a consistant basis!) I hope I will get a few regular visitors as well as the the usual migrants flying over from google!
But I’ve got a bit of work to do before that happens I think.
Up, up and away!
