Welcome to Talks and Walks! And Welcome to our very first blog post!
This is the area of the site where you will be able to find all the latest news on where we’ve been and what wildlife we’ve seen. It’ll also cover current news on nature, conservation, sustainability and other natural topics from across the globe to right here in Britain. Our blogs will be packed with information, pictures, news and videos too.
The story of Talks and Walks begins with the huge world of wildlife, with over 8 million different species currently in existence. Along with this is a great passion to discover, explore and enjoy anything and everything to do with wildlife and share it with as many people as possible. With so much to see though, where do you start? The easiest place is actually right on our doorstep.
In every garden, every town park, every back yard there is always the potential to find something amazing whether it’s daisies in the lawn, a scorpion fly in the trees or a hibernating hedgehog in the compost heap. Nature spotting is a pastime that Britain is well known for but the draw of the computer and the television is a strong one to fight in the 21st century. However what lies beyond the garden gate is still well worth discovering for all the family. Our wildlife is incredibly important to our daily lives, more so than we could ever imagine, both for us and our future generations.
This blog is not only about what we’re doing though, it’s also about what you’re doing. If you’ve been out and about or been at home enjoying the sunshine (sunshine in the UK?) and you’ve seen something you don’t recognise we invite you to send in you pictures or videos and we’ll try our best to identify the animal, plant or fungus in this blog. You can also send funny or interesting pictures and stories of wild animals you’ve encountered which may also appear in the blog.
You can send your pictures to [email protected].
And with that I can declare our blog officially open. Remember to favourite this page and keep checking back for regular updates. If you have a suggestion of a topic you’d like us to cover or location you’d like us to report on please feel free to leave a comment below.
