About me

Introduction Hi, this blog is all about the countryside - I am fascinated by anything and everything out there and hope that you will enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for what makes the place tick! I enjoy delving into all aspects of land management, by following the key issues affecting farmers, foresters, keepers and conservationists and how the decisions they make impacts on our amazing wildlife. Talking of wildlife - it doesn't matter if I'm observing a bird, insect, flower or mammal - ALL natural history captivates me!! I have lived in the countryside all of my life and currently work as biodiversity advisor for the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, a job that takes me to all parts of England. I am a keen amateur photographer, love all sport, but in particular rugby (follow Gloucester and England) and cricket (Worcestershire, Hampshire and England). Cooking, food and travel are key interests too - especially when they come together with great company!
