Thirteen years old

I wrote a Guest Blog for my young friend Findlay Wilde – have a look at it.

pic16This is me at the age of thirteen holding a trophy that I and a companion had won in the Under -14 (but Over-12) age category in a schools competition run by WWT at Slimbridge. I was handed that trophy by the great Sir Peter Scott himself.

I know, I haven’t changed a bit, have I? Or have I – a more up to date photo of me with the same trophy is on Findlay’s blog site.

Also on Findlay’s blog are similar ‘when I was thirteen’ blogs by Lucy McRobert and David McGrath – they are very interesting.

And, by chance, that same WWT school competition is mentioned by Robert Gillmor in his interview in Behind the Binoculars – out on 20 July but ready to order now (where there is also an interview with WWT’s Debbie Pain).

  1. They certainly are remarkable young people and I enjoy their contributions daily.

  2. Thank you so much for doing the guest blog and for posting it on here as well. The first 3 have been so interesting and so different, and there are lots more to come in the series; from CEOs to the person who inspired me to start blogging. The next one is being posted tomorrow, but who will it be........
