A first attempt at blogging...

So, hero scientist then? That’s a lot to live up to. And I can’t help but get Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Holding Out for a Hero’ in my head every time I say that. Hopefully you have it in your head now too…


Chilly Mursley!

Well, thankfully, the weather has warmed up a fair bit since I took my water sample in Mursley, Buckinghamshire back in early March! It was so cold, in fact, that I had to (safely) break some ice to get to my sample and the gloves didn't offer much protection against the chilly water.

The water body itself is a 'newly-created' area located in a field belonging to my parents-in-law. The area (coincidentally next to Mursley's iconic water tower) is naturally low-lying and boggy so a natural pond has been created to attract wildlife and promote biodiversity.

Website Update

Things are starting to move really quickly on the website..hopefully we will soon have a fully operation site.  As part of this process I am going to be testing the following:
