Plants of Skye, Raasay & The Small Isles

Joanna and Julian have had a look at parts of NG60P in Sleat that had not been surveyed before, particularly small areas of woodland. They added nearly 50 taxa to the tetrad including Platanthera chlorantha (Greater Butterfly-orchid) and new to NG60, Carex canescens (White Sedge). Bridgette re-found the Kalmia procumbens (Trailing Azalea) on An Diallaid. […]

Plants of Skye, Raasay & The Small Isles

Yesterday Neil and I went to the Geary Ravine SSSI and then moved south to take in some woodland along the coast in the same tetrad. We got to parts of the Geary Ravine that I had never managed before but still failed to re-find any of the quite long list of things found by […]

Tetrad NG46Q was unique in the vice-county in having 100% land but no records since before 2000. In fact it only had eleven ever. On Tuesday Neil and I sorted that out with the total now being 148. Much of the lower area was petty dull until we reached the Abhhainn Gremiscaig (as it is […]

This notion of Bioethics, formulated with the support and endorsement of the Council of the Commission, derives from two aspects: the need to have a conceptual approach as long as there is no definition as such, of a universal nature; and, on the other hand, a notion is needed that allows it to be transferred […]

Marshall McLuhan’s aphorism; “the medium is the message”, enables audiences to delve deeper into the popularisation of the word ‘media’ in the 21st century. Whilst studying Introduction to Media studies, I wrote an essay regarding McLuhan and his works. Marshall McLuhan’s aphorism “the medium is the message”, (McLuhan 2013, p.13) is both beneficial and unsalable […]

Sussex Bryophytes

Chalvington and Ripe Almost a month after my earlier visit I cycled to Ripe again, this time getting a train to Berwick and meandering around the lanes from there.

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=The%2B_Dramatic_Universe_commentary2a_JL.pdf I have tried several times to elucidate some portion of Bennett’s The Dramatic Universe.

The History of the Birds of Stevenage

Uncommon residents of the rural edges of the town. Yellowhammers were one of Britain’s commonest birds in the nineteenth century, and there were major immigrations of them in the winter. They declined in numbers in the late 1950s and early 1960s, particularly in south east England, due to the use of organochlorine seed dressings. They […]
