Introduction As a broadcaster and naturalist, I began this blog in 2007. After an absence of a few years while dallying in the world of Social Media lately I have become ever more drawn back to the world of blogging. And that return is providing an inspiration. Often thinking I was born 2 centuries too late, I seem to sense an awareness of those rural dwellers walking the ploughed furrow before me. The British Countryside made me who I am. For twenty nine years this centred on Northumbria (the land of the Border Reivers). Since 1993 Somerset and wonderful Wessex countryside has been my home. My interests spin like a flock of goldfinches wheeling at leisure over the thistle down of a sunlit winter's field. Then I move on down the road less trod and stop for a while, just to listen to the silence.
Interests British Wildlife, Art, Horticulture, Farming, Countryside Management and Conservation, Agricultural and Rural History, Rural Land Use and Management, British Customs and Lone Walks
