I hope you weren’t partying and snogging everybody in sight to have a good time the New 12 months final night time. In some way I don’t image the readership of this weblog as having many superspreaders in it however, you by no means know. I had an early night time!
I’m trying ahead to many issues this yr and now we’re nicely previous the winter solstice the mornings filled with Blackbird, Robin and Track Thrush songs aren’t that far-off and I’m trying ahead to their return like by no means earlier than.
At round that point this weblog will attain its tenth birthday. The primary weblog printed right here was this one on 21 April 2011. What have been you doing on 21 April 2011? And the way have you ever stuffed the time in between?
You might have observed that I’ve stuffed that point by organising Hen Harrier Day occasions from 2014 onwards, doing a little consultancy work for wildlife NGOs, writing some books, doing the occasional little bit of campaigning, being a trustee of the World Land Belief, being a co-founder of Wild Justice and scripting this weblog on an virtually each day foundation.
Once I say virtually each day foundation, within the final roughly 3500 days this weblog has printed nicely over 8000 posts thus far. It’s a pretty vital reward to the conservation world as not a single phrase on right here has been sponsored or paid for. It’s a present that has been given gladly – I take pleasure in writing and I take pleasure in sounding off about what goes improper with the pure world and what ought to be performed to place it proper. However all good issues, and most dangerous issues, should come to an finish and so, on the very least, this weblog can be taking a protracted sabbatical beginning this spring. What’s lengthy? Months and months, however perhaps it will likely be a unending break.
How will I fill my time? Don’t you are worried, I’ll fill my time.
