Nature Webcams to help with Self Isolation

April 05, 2020


In times of crisis, the natural world is a source of both joy and solace. The natural world produces the comfort that can come from nothing else.
David Attenborough 

As the reality of the COVID-19 lockdown sinks in and we settle down into self-isolation, the importance of the natural world in keeping our spirits up is apparent. One form of exercise a day is currently permitted, which includes walking, and whilst some are lucky enough to live near places where nature can easily be found close to home, others may not have this luxury. Some have taken to finding wildlife in their gardens and birdwatching from their windows, but another way of getting a nature fix in this difficult time is to tune in to the endless array of live webcams online. This post features a selection that I have been enjoying recently and I hope you will too!

Natures Good News : Recent Conservation Successes

March 29, 2020


Due to the current corona virus crisis, there is worry, fear and uncertainty all around the world. I'm very lucky that I am able to work from home, but have still been feeling anxious and lonely as I'm far away from family and friends and not sure when I will next see them. So I decided now was a good time to take a break from reading the news and worrying, and focus on some recent conservation successes. Hopefully this post will allow a few moments of positivity for anyone that needs it!

Life as a Skokholm Island volunteer : Part 3

October 19, 2019


It was with a heavy heart that I left Skokholm Island at the start of the month, and I still feel at a loss now I’m back on the mainland. They call it ‘Dream Island’ for a reason, and I couldn’t have imagined before I arrived how true this is. You might think it would get dull spending 3 months on an island just a mile long and half a mile wide, but it still remained just as fresh and exciting on the last day as it had the first. It’s a combination of being surrounded by the ever changing and sometimes raging Celtic Sea, in blissful self-imposed isolation from the troubles of the world, living simply and appreciating the rhythms of nature that are so often missed in day to day life. Being able to see a sky full of stars at night, an endless horizon and the sun rise and set every day, and spending the time with like-minded people who are interested in and care about birds and conservation. Its all of this and so much more, a totally immersive experience, and this last post is about everything else that happened on the island besides the seabird work.
