What is naturestimeline’s mission?

Naturestimeline contains personal observations from the natural world as the search continues for a new approach to conservation.

I have an undying passion for natural history and with this blog I will slowly and intimately reveal this. Some intentions of the Blog are set out below.

  • Attempt to understand the needs of modern conservation practice in light of a changing climate.
  • My passion for a new approach to conservation and how we have it in us to turn things around”.
  • Any other British Natural History items of interest.
  • I will also endeavour to produce a timeline of natural events for the United Kingdom, like no other

Please feel free to contact me for general information or alternatively subscribe to my blog via email as follows………

    Hi Tony. Thanks for stopping by The Quiet Way and liking my Climate Change?? post. I had to look up the (British) definition of “anorak”. I guess I fall under the same description…see another of my blogs at http://amateurgeophysics.wordpress.com for the evidence. Best wishes for the new year.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. The birds you have are very different from the ones we see here in the U.S.

    I’m really enjoying reading your blog, so played along with this award thing… feel free to do with it what you will! :-)

    Thanks for liking my post – its very kind of you to even look at my blog. Cheers.
    P.S Pheneology is very interesting with Climate change.

  7. Hi Tony,
    Thanks for the comment on the “Guillemots and the Climate Change Mistake” post on the blog. Your site inspired me to post a bit of phenological searching of my own!
    See http://21stcenturynaturalist.blogspot.com/2012/02/early-flowering-plants.html

  8. hey Tony, thx for checking me out.. I like ur blog. I don’t have the time to read up more on climate stuff, so I’m subscribing to you in the hopes that you’ll keep me up to date! (no pressure lol).. looking forward, best. C

    Hello Tony, I’m really impressed by your phenological research and I want to nominate ‘naturestimeline’ for the ‘Versatile Blogger’ award.

    If you feel you don’t want to accept that’s absolutely fine, but if you do, the award requests that you nominate your favourite fifteen blogs and notify them of the nomination, share seven facts about yourself, and lastly display the award logo on your website (a copy of the logo can be lifted from here: http://thenaturephile.com/2012/03/16/id-just-like-to-thank/).

    • Your comments are most pleasing but I will leave the award for others more deserving. Perhaps I will accept it, when I can think of seven facts about myself that are worthy of inclusion.

      Best Wishes and Thanks for the nomination.

      Tony Powell

    Thanks for ‘liking’ my post at Minkyweasel World. Your blog looks very interesting too and from what you say regarding your objectives well, that is quite a daunting task isn’t it? I’m sure you are up for it though! Hope it goes to plan.

    Good morning – I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Award at http://www.pczick.wordpress.com. Congratulations. I look forward to your posts.

  13. Thanks for visiting my blog. I wish I could identify more bird sounds…I’d like to include them…seeing them requires a dedication which you seem to have and I have yet to possess!

    • Years of dedication are what it comes down to, really. If you want to learn the British birds (I’m assuming you’re a UK resident here) then if you can get hold of the “teach yourself bird sound” series of tapes/cds, you will find these are most helpful. Alternatively, go join the local bird group on a walk somewhere. The aforementioned cassette tapes (from 1992 onwards) were precisely how I started with my bird sound addiction and I have never looked back.

      Kind Regards

    Thanks for liking my post of nature journaling! We try very hard to get children interested in observation and asking good questions as early as we can. Hopefully, they will end up with a strong interest in the natural world like yourself! Keep up the wonderful work; the study of phenology is facinating and you are performing an important service.
    Thanks again,

  16. Stopped by from LinkedIN. I was not familiar with this topic. It seems fascinating. Congratulations on such an interesting passion and for sharing it with the world.

    • Tony says:

      No problem. Phenelogy is a subject, which is close to my heart and I have followed nature in a such a way for near on twenty years now. I’m glad you liked it.

      Kind Regards

    Thanks for the visit and I do like the idea behind your blog. Dragonshades is doing its own daily journey and I have been fascinated by the interaction of light and colour since my blog was started last July. I’m off to explore the many fascinating headings on your blog.

  20. It’s remarkable to pay a visit this web site and reading the views of all colleagues on the topic of this article, while I am also eager of getting know-how.

  21. Blitz Krieg says:

    Good blog! Thank you for your information shared.

  22. RonniN says:

    Thanks for liking my blog…not sure how we connected, but if it was over an interest in nature, then I’m not surprised! I like your site very much. I spent almost a month in Northern England, and a good portion of Scotland back in the 90s, and recall the beauty and climate fondly. Orkney was a bit blustery, but I’d love to see it all again. Cheers!
