I’ve been passionate about the natural world for as long as I can remember. An extraordinary web of wonder surrounds us, and those who choose to pay attention will be greatly rewarded. The trouble is, it’s not enough anymore just to love nature. Our environment is fragmented and our species are suffering.

I’ve been living in Aberdeen (cold) for nearly six years now, where I work at an environmental research institute. Weekends are for conservation volunteering and escaping to the nearby Cairngorm National Park. Not to mention drawing and painting all the wonderful things I see. Whilst birds were my first love, in recent years I’ve turned to insects – moths in particular. I’ll talk about them to anybody who wants to listen (and plenty who don’t).

Never forget that everybody has something they can offer to help protect our wildlife. The preservation of our land relies on the everyday acts of people who love nature and decide to do something about it.

  1. Many thanks for visiting my blog and liking it enough to follow! I have the same love of wildlife, and Scotland is one of my very favourite places. I had an especially wonderful trip to Cape Wrath.
