Emptying our Uplands

Filed in Articles, Wildlife on Jul.27, 2020

My love of the Dipper started as a small boy, I’d catch two buses from my home with my bag packed with cold toast and a flask to get to Lathkill Dale, in the Peak District. Once I got there I’d sit and watch these incredible birds play out their lives before me.

It often takes something to have happened to us before we have a different mindset or want to change. As we start to ease the restraints of lockdown that we have been part of now for several months.

Welcome Back

Filed in Projects on May.22, 2020
