I had a great time attending an A Focus On Nature (group for young conservationists and naturalists - look at me above being all naturalist-y ;-) ) gathering at Knepp Wildlands estate in Sussex at the weekend.
As you may know, I struggle in social situations, so it was fantastic to spend time with so many like-minded genuinely nice people for a weekend, and the wildlife was truly remarkable at this unique place.
The stuff we got involved with included moth-trapping, bird ringing, invertebrate catching, as well as a couple of species-specific searches.
The group shot! Hope to meet you all again some day! :-)
Huge thanks to Simon Phelps for organising, Tony Davis for guiding, and Penny Green for fab hosting. Top work all!
