This time last year this was what I resolved;
You can decide for yourselves how I did but the fact that you are reading these words might mean that you are still giving me a chance.
My own assessment would be I have stood up for nature, I have not been too gratuitously nasty, I have not been afraid of upsetting people, I have done pourly on weading out the typoos and speling mistaces, I have given others a voice through comments and guest blogs and I have offered some practical advice to readers.
I am sometimes first with news but it really is more important to me to use my experience of the world of nature conservation to comment forcefully and authoritatively on events. I do my best.
