  • Photo Blog: Autumn Woodland Walks

    Autumn is my favourite season of the year and it is a great time to get out into the woodlands for a walk. As the leaves start to change colour and fall a woodland can take on a whole new character and birds that have been hiding amongst the foliage during the summer start to show themselves again. An early morning walk can often have the added magic of a frost or a misty start and an evening walk can lend itself to some dramatic sunsets as the pictures below will hopefully show. // Autumn Leaves... read more

  • Book Review: Urban Peregrines by Ed Drewitt

    Urban Peregrines by Ed Drewitt Ed Drewitt's name may be familiar to many people from his writing for BBC Wildlife Magazine, or his pieces on Springwatch.

He now brings these talents to... read more

  • Verdant Website Goes Carbon Neutral

    I am always looking at ways to minimise my personal impact and the impact of Verdant Wildlife on the natural world whether that be through simple things like recycling or buying local produce to reduce food miles or something more ambitious such as making our online presence carbon neutral. A fact I heard a while back was that a hundred website visitors produces  the equivalent amount of emissions as a 220 mile journey in a family car and that carbon emissions from the internet and associated computing power is second only to the aviation industry!!!! Therefore I was exciting to come... read more
