A Decade of BB...

Just in the nick of time I remembered that my blog is 10 years old today!

A decade of wildlife in Northumberland and beyond.

Social media has diluted the blog somewhat but it has an unbroken record so I am keeping it up, who knows where it will go ( not far I expect) but you never know. When I started this, the whole social media / blogging thing was in its infancy. I was inspired by Graeme Catleys. 'Pewit' Blog ( and still am), but best of all its having contact and conversaions with total strangers who become 'friends'. Some people knock this friends theory but I genuinely do enjoy the contact with people I would never have met as they live in far flung corners of the UK.

So, if you are thinking of commenting or asking me something, don't hesitate, I really do like the contact!

Thanks all for all the kind comments and advice over the years, here's to the next 10...

A Corn Bunting at Boulmer in 2006, my very first blog post. How many new birders need that for the County?

Coming up to my 9th ''blog Birthday'' this October Stewart :-) I find it hard to post as frequently as I used to, mainly due to the increasing habitat destruction on my patch, but I struggle along !

Congratulations Stewart. Like you other Social Media takes up time also as better and easier forms of contact are developed but I still keep my blog running although it is mainly about Big Waters now. Keep going mate....

Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary - you are a great inspiration! I only started my nature blog quite recently so I have a long way to go. Your kingfisher photograph is amazing.
