Apologies for my absence, I've been scaring myself silly, presenting at this years European Congress for Conservation Biology; it was a lot of fun and much discussion and boozing was done by all (well, myself and Chris Parsons).
There were some great talks on all fields of conservation science, ranging from the broad to the broadly incomprehensible; and I'm sure I went to more on birds and birding than on marine science, but, hey, what are these things for?
I'm back on my island now anyway - and its raining - but, just for you, I did manage to find some previously unphotographed island inhabitants. Tune in tomorrow for pictures of the wonderful newts in the field next door! Looks like I'm back in the saddle already.
