After what has seemed a long, hard shlog of a few months back at university, these babies were one hell of a welcomed sight this weekend back at home. How beautiful.
My recent frolicking in Salcombe
Here we have The Bugula neritina (B.neritina) a tiny, weeny bryozoan. A non-native marine organism found in Salcombe (and many other places!!) This little bab is currently in his early stages, and therefore is being looked at under a strong microscope. He may not seem like much, but thanks to this little fella – my dissertation is moving along quite nicely (stay tuned for more details…)
I took the dog for a walk yesterday evening and I came across this stunning view! Made me realise how lucky we are to have views and places of outstanding natural beauty, like this one, in the uk. So it’s VITAL we protect them and the wildlife that inhabit there from major threats such as building developers. Keep these habitats safe = protect our wildlife!
Soooo today I made the decision to embark on a 7 1/2 mile walk up on cold, wet and windy Dartmoor. We started at Princetown and followed the Victorian leat in a loop. Rather pleasent – even if I could ring-out the water from my socks and pants just 5 minutes into the trek…. Here’s a picture of me looking miserable – enjoy!…
