Why did I leave it so long before venturing back into my office? – Was it because I was being extra careful to not spread Covid? Maybe. – Was it because I actually quite liked being at home? Maybe – Or was there another reason that meant I left it as long as seemed reasonable? Maybe Watch the video to find out. I call it, “Bananas”
Don’t let it put you off the Masters course. I put them in the compost.
Hands up who knew there was a courtyard behind the Drummond building. One person claimed to have worked at the Uni for 20 years and never knew it was there
Our first Uni bioblitz with staff from the Uni and from EricNorthEast (environmental records). So for Covid we kept it contained in the courtyard – turned out it was a great place – despite some dubious “wild flower” species
Duncan and Alice took me round their recent acquisition: Benshaw Moss – what a site! I liked it immediatly as I could see dry heath, wet heath, bog, acid grassland – a great range of habitats with potential for improvemnt. But then they showed me the calcareous grassland, the calcareous flushes and the weird iron rich flush and I was bowled over
So a great place for collaboration – for field trips and student projects and hopefully a bioblitz in the autumn
So much potential – I’m looking forward to seeing what they will do with it and to working with them on student projects
