So this blog has now had over a million views and not all of them are views by Russian bots or by myself- there must be a few genuine hits in there surely?. Anyway as any regular readers (if there are any) will know this blog is mainly about day to day observations in nature that I come across at work, home , the local patches and trips away with the occasional reflection (i.e. de-ranged rant) about concerns about the future of the nature around me and updates on projects which are aimed at doing something about those concerns. To bring that all together I've built this vehicle LITTLE OAK GROUP so basically this blog mainly reports on the day to day journey of that chugging along nature bus. The purpose of the blog is to share stuff that we find.
However as most of humanity have no interest whatsoever in the day to day zen of the long and winding road this blog does actually inadvertently also report on the occasional exciting discovery for those, as Confucius once said 'The common man finds interest in what is rare, whereas the wise man finds interest in the commonplace' (I saw that on an internet meme while I was trawling for rare bird news so its probably not just self damning but also fake) so here are a few of those exciting posts which boost the blog stats.
