Welcome to my blog

This is where I post various musings about wildlife and ecology, observations of interesting species (often invertebrates)
and bits of research that grab my attention. As well as blogging, I undertake professional ecological & wildlife surveys
covering invertebrates, plants, birds, reptiles, amphibians and some mammals, plus habitat assessment and management
. I don't work on planning applications/for developers. The pages on the right will tell you more about my work,
main interests and key projects, and you can follow my academic work here.

Jolly writing news

No close-ups of invertebrates today - just a quick post to say a big 'yay' 'cos I've just agreed with Pelagic Publishing that I'm writing a book on Leaf Beetles as part of their Naturalists Handbooks series. Woot! I've got a year to write it, then it's due out mid-to-late 2015... Let the typing commence!
