Hedgehog Friendly Campus at UWE Frenchay

It’s been over a year since my last blog post! Kicking off revitilising this blog, I’m going to talk about hedgehogs, the Hedgehog Friendly Campus initiative and the work UWE have been doing as part of this, which I have been fortunate to play a part in. The hedgehog, Erinaceus europaeus, can be found all …

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 …

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 …

Morning Moth Trap Update and Identification Help

A Timeline of the First Year of University (part 2)

Continuing from yesterday’s post, we find ourselves in November 2018: Such was my dedication, I spent my 37th birthday desperately hammering out an assignment for Wildlife and Society, which ended up getting good feedback and a grade I was happy with. I also discovered that University of Bristol were starting up an entomology society, so …

A Timeline of the First Year of University (part 1)

I debated doing this blog over multiple posts; however, even though it means this will be another long one, I’ve opted for just the one (update – actually, this will probably come in two parts instead!). Think of this as a ‘catch up’, or ‘the Story So Far, part 2’. September 2018: the first month …
