Why are you still here?

The Avalon Marshes are producing some fantastic birding at the moment. You shouldn't be reading about it on here though, you should be looking at my new website for all the latest.

Oh, and if you could add it as a link, that would be amaaaazing. cheers

I found two of these leggy beauts yesterday!!
Went looking for a Black Kite and bumped into this Osprey instead

Bitterns everywhere

Hobbies starting to arrive in numbers

OK, I said I was going to post all Somerset stuff on the new website, but a couple of things......

First, I just had to show off this Hoopoe, found by my Dad just outside our village on some scrappy fields yesterday. I love how we're surrounded by top-class nature reserves and the birds just turn up on old farmland.

Secondly, I would really appreciate it if you could add the new website/blog to your links or blog lists. I'm trying to get the ball rolling so as much traffic as possible is really important right now. I'm currently trying to create a blog list like the one in the sidebar as a page for the new site but its a bit HTML-fiddly, so might be a while, but I will try and create reciprocals for any links.
Thanks a lot

New Website, New Life!

So, this is what i've been quietly working away on for the last month or so, my new business Avalon Wildlife
Over the last few years I've come to realise what a truly awesome place for birds and wildlife the Somerset Levels are, thanks to a huge effort from various conservation bodies. The 'Avalon Marshes' in particular forming a huge area of co-joined nature reserves packed with cool stuff. As the area is pretty much the closest I can get to a 'home', I've decided to set up shop as a guide, to help people get the very best out of a visit to the region.

The project is still very much in a developmental stage at the moment, and I hope to be able to build up my services to a much broader operation than currently advertised, but hey, you gotta start somewhere.
The new website will also function as a day-to-day diary of what i'm seeing on the Avalon Marshes, so will take over from this blog. I hope to use this new website and blog to promote the area as a wildlife destination as well as promoting my own business, and plan to update it frequently, i'll also have a proper go at this Twitter thing soon, so please check back regularly, even if you're not interested in the guided tour side of things.

I will still leave this old blog running for any excursions outside of Somerset, and because I think it's quite a useful resource for my foreign trip ramblings.

If you could add this site to your links pages that would be very much appreciated, let me know and i'll happily add a reciprocal on here.

Any feedback on the services i'm offering, and the website itself would be very much appreciated, as i'm pretty new to this sort of thing. I'm best contacted these days at
