For those of you that read my blog at the actual site rather than through a reader will notice I swapped around the layout and the picture. I like the new change.
The old picture was of swans in Leazes Park next to my student accommodation. This new one is of “Lindisfarne Castle” at, well, Lindisfarne. I went to Lindisfarne for a bird survey field trip last term. We had lunch and looked at shore birds through scopes when I took this picture. This wasn’t any tourist trip, we were there with a purpose of food and seeing birds. Crazy biologists.
Grant is a bit more than jealous that I got to Lindisfarne. Poor guy, he’s been trapped in a course that doesn’t do field trips. I wonder if I can sneak him along on my field trip to Kielder Forest this term (I went last term as well for Ecological Survey Techniques).
