Daft Mumblings?

In 2011, I started a year long career break which helped me to hit the ‘reset button’ on my life outside of work.  Before my break, I had some interests but really failed to make the most of my time during evenings, weekends and holidays.  My break changed all this and I returned to my career determined not only to continue working hard but just as importantly make the most of time when not in the office.

Before 2011, I certainly didn’t have enough to say to warrant starting a blog but now I think I do.  My blog is primarily focussed on my love of nature and concern for the natural (and sometimes built) environment and how I experience them; through conservation volunteering, photography, walking, cycling and even just looking out of the train window on the way to work.  Sometimes, my posts stray a little way from the blog’s main theme (I do like a nice building) but it’s good to change focus from time to time.

Oh, and Daft Mumblings of a Concerned Amateur? Well, I see daftness as a great form of humour (there should be more daftness in the world) and I generally mumble a lot, particularly to myself.  Whilst at work I’m a ‘professional’, in my spare time activities I’m most definitely an amateur.  A concerned one, though, as many of the issues I feel strongly about, environmental issues in particular, I am growing increasingly worried about.

Overall, this is may place for daft mumblings, nonsense and generally bleating on about things.

  1. Hi Peter!

    My name is Isla and I’m working on Blue Planet 3 – the next instalment of the BBC’s critically-acclaimed underwater nature series.

    I really enjoyed reading your blogs and seeing your images from your Falkland Island adventures. I would love to ask you some more questions about what animal behaviours you saw.

    Please email me back if possible!

    Best wishes.
