- Rachel Bates: Brexit and the Environment – An Ecologists’ View. Fellow Wildlife Articles author, Rachel Bates shares her personal thoughts on #Brexit and its potential implications for the environment.
- Appleton Wild: RSPB Big Wild Sleepout. Fantastic patch reporter Alex shares his experience of a night under the stars, in the company of some great wildlife. Complete with some lovely Hedgehog footage.
- Connel Bradwll: Penguins in the Desert. Another informative video from the throughly charming (and extremely enthusiastic) Connel. This time looking some of the biggest lies and half truths associated with the animal kingdom.
- Georgia Locock: More Time At Spurn. By nature, I had include a birding related post somewhere in here. And as such, have chosen this typically well-written, topical account of developments at one of Britain’s finest nature reserves, Spurn.
