Webinars

This isn’t the most interesting of blog posts, but I just wanted to highlight how useful I’ve found webinars this last year, and while the below list will be of most use to myself, it might be of interest to others too. Like many people over the covid-19 lockdowns, I’ve attended lots of online webinars, …

January Update

Wow… was my last post really way back in September? It’s only four months ago, but it feels like at least a year. To say it has been busy would be a vast understatement! SO MANY ASSIGNMENTS. October At the end of September I set up Bristol Invertebrates (another neglected blog that I need to …

September update… continued.

The First Week First full week of level two university is complete! One down, *something, something, many, lots* to go, heh. By which you may safely assume that it has not been without stressors. Firstly, I was told many, many times by many people that level two is quite the step up from level one. …

September 2019 update

Well! Back to university! I feel like I have hit the ground running, full of plans and ideas, I just have to keep checking myself to make sure I don’t take on far more than I can comfortably handle! The other day I was bemoaning the fact that I haven’t managed to get UWE EntSoc …

July 2019 Update – a Diary

Post the British Ecological Society Undergraduate Summer School it feels like I haven’t done a great deal, but this will hopefully show what I have actually done! If you follow me on social media you’ve probably seen most of this, but I have condensed it all down for this. Work Firstly, I’ve been doing a …

British Ecological Society Undergraduate Summer School

I’ve debated over the two days since I got back from this amazing experience how best to blog about it. The reality is that we did, saw, and learned so much and it was SO wonderful that it would likely turn this post into something so long no-one would read it [edit, believe me, as …

Social media

Having been advised by many people to become more active on social media, over the last few months I’ve set up a Facebook page (Facebook being the platform I’m more used to), this blog, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. I’ve linked these to this blog, so hopefully this will reduce the amount of time I spend …

Surveying for Otters

Over the years I have heard stories of otter sightings in Bristol. I love otters, I tend to melt into a gooey puddle of ‘squee’ when I see them at zoos, but I have never actually seen a wild otter in the UK and until recently had no idea where, when or how to see …

Volunteering at Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution

In the interest of catching up with what I have been doing over the last year, this post is about the work I have been doing at the BRLSI. The BRLSI is based in Bath, on Queen Square, and has existed since 1824, though its roots can be traced back to Bath Societies in the …

Riverfly Monitoring

Back in March 2018 I chanced upon a Facebook post advertising a free training session for Riverfly Monitoring. I wasn’t altogether sure what this entailed, but it sounded interesting and so I signed up for it. Riverfly Monitoring in the Bristol area is coordinated by Bristol Avon Rivers Trust (BART), in partnership with the Angler’s …
