I’ve been rushing about and don’t quite have time to write a proper blog today – plenty more coming in the next few days though! – and you did get two blogs on Tuesday, so please indulge me when I just post most of an email that a reader of this blog sent to me:
‘I waste (?) hours reading your blog and love your writing, keep up the good work. The wild world needs help, all it can get. Thank something or other (not God) for the McCarthys, Attenboroughs Cockers, you and all the other naturalists who try and make us aware of the destruction that we are causing our planet. I really believe that conservationists need to be more hard hitting, less touchy feely, perhaps more like anti’s such as James Bartholomew (Daily Telegraph). Read him and one realises what we are up against.‘.
That’s a very nice email to receive and I thank the person who sent it.
The readership of this blog keeps increasing so I may be doing something right. And it seems likely to increase by another one as someone I met in Newcastle yesterday said to me ‘I’m going to have to start reading your blog every day as our chief exec does and then comes in and expects to know what we think about it!’.
