My first blog

It’s a cloudy Saturday afternoon, I’ve been birdwatching at a my local patch and now I’m hunkering down with a mug of coffee and the latest BTO News magazine.

On a bit of a whim, I’ve decided to finally have a crack at this website gaff and put this site together. A collection of useful mapping tools, recent wildlife sightings and links to other content, it should be informative for anyone interested in maps, wildlife and adventure.

I’m not aiming to build up a massive store of content, grease all the wheels and stylize the fonts before it goes ‘live’, but rather to let the page develop and evolve as it grows. If you find any of the content useful or interesting, please drop anchor and leave a comment below!
