I’m going to point you in the direction of some other blogs – blogs that I like to read (although not necessarily agree with).
But first I’d like to point you back towards a few of my previous blogs and the comments that have accumulated on them.
Since I came back from the USA this blog has attracted over 8,000 unique visitors (according to Google Analytics).
Last week’s blogs attracted more visitors than any previous week with blogs on:
– FWAG’s expected demise – worth going back to this to see some very well informed comments from several people involved with FWAG
– is there space for an edgy wildlife NGO? – see news of FoE’s work on nature in the comments
– raptor poisoning – lots of good comments here too
– gamekeepers and the Daily Telegraph being disingenuous – lots of good comments here too
But here is a selection of blogs for you to dip into (and then come back to me please!):
Martin Harper – the RSPB Conservation Director should be in your favourite’s list
Crex group – not many blogs but this one was quite funny really
Miles King from the Grassland Trust – I like his writing and his views but they are a bit intermittent
The best blog on the internet by someone called Avery? – my daughter’s excellent blog
Geoffrey Lean – even though it is the Daily Telegraph
Alan Tilmouth is very birdy – and that’s sometimes what I need – and some great images
Birding Extremadura – an interesting blog from a lovely part of the world
Saving the spoon-billed sandpiper is a gripping blog of a brave and ambitious conservation project
The green living blog from environmental think tank green Alliance is very thoughtgful, though its environmental views rarely touch wildlife and nature
…and for anyone considering writing a blog then my book, Blogging for Nature, contains some good tips on how to get started and how to keep going, as well as a selection of blogs about nature and the politics that affect it from my RSPB days.
Coming soon, reviews of Blogging for Nature in British Birds and BBC Wildlife magazines.
A signed copy of Blogging for Nature would make a great Christmas present for that RSPB member for whom present-buying is always difficult. Get in touch with me through firstname.lastname@example.org to order signed copies at £11 to cover postage and packing within the UK.
