Why naturestimeline?

Naturestimeline encapsulates my own personal observations from the natural world as the search continues for a new approach to conservation. Moreover, naturestimeline will illustrate to you why we need to do more and how we can all be conservationists in our own right.

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

  • Attempt to understand the need for modern conservation practice against the backdrop of a changing climate.
  • Together we can find a much-needed new approach to conservation, and I will explain how we have it in all of us, to turn things around for nature”.
  • To openly promote British Natural History items of interest.
  • Ultimately, I want to work with your wildlife-friendly business.

  1. Hey there – thanks for liking my post! May I ask how you stumbled upon my blog? Thanks! -Jilly

    1. Hi Jilly,

      I stumbled upon your blog by simply browsing the topics section. It was my interest in Phenology and its link with nature and weather that led me to yours.

      All the best.

  2. Usually I do not read article on blogs,
    however I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do so!
    Your writing taste has been amazed me.
    Thank you, quite nice post.

  3. First, thank you for visiting my blog.
    We are fogged in this morning. Being Saturday I would prefer to sleep in but the cat had other needs and ideas, thus I am sitting in front of the computer. Visiting you blog has been a lovely way to start the day. You obviously tend it with the same care you walk in the world. Blessings.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thank you for those kind words and additionally for subscribing.

      Best Wishes

  4. Interesting blog. Thanks for visiting mine and drawing me here!

  5. Hello Tony
    This has to be one of the most interesting and useful natural history blogs available. The information and the way that it is presented is fascinating.
    I shall be back regularly.

    1. Many Thanks for your kind comments. Tracking the seasons via natural world events has long been in my blood. If, well more like, when Climate Change comes calling, the natural world is the first place to look for any indicators. To be even more invaluable, weather records and phenology records need to go back hundreds if not thousands of years. In spite of that, I hope I am still making an impact with my record keeping.

  6. thanks for the comment. your blog is fab

  7. Hello Tony, pleased to have found your blog, I’m interested! Look forward to going through your posts, I’m sure we will have some things to discuss. Cheers pal and best wishes, James 🙂

      1. Cheers Tony, much appreciated, James 🙂

  8. Thank you for the visit …& pushing the article forward – a lot to read on climate change!! great!

    Hi Tony!
    I haven’t had much time (as a newbie blogger) to search for kewl blogs to follow, but I’m glad you liked my phenology article, which in turn, brought me to yours. I use phenology in my landscaping job a lot, but haven’t been on the reporting end of it, until now. I look forward to checking out your blog and learning more! Thanks!

    1. No problem, I’ve returned the favour and am now following your blog. How lucky, you are, to be able to use phenological traits as part of your job. Whilst I’m at risk of being thick here, when you say Midwestern, where are situated in the world? I am based in the United Kingdom and as an example, our Snowdrops are on the way out now. Thanks again for following.

      Kind Regards

        Midwestern refers to the middle states of America, generally around Lake Michigan. I’m in Illinois, hardiness zone 5A -28C to -26C. Brrr! I see your UK climate is a bit nicer than here. We’ve had a very slow spring here, there’s actually snow in the forecast for tomorrow! Last year it was our 40th day over 21C. Hmmm.
        I look forward to reading your blog, I do enjoy learning about new things! Catch you in the comments section =-D

        1. Many Thanks, that at least explains the differences.

    Hi Tony, thanks for liking our blog 🙂 I like yours
    as i am also a birder and general naturalist as well as an archaeologist and my partner is a bird surveyor and weather nut! 🙂

    1. You must make a wonderful couple, a marriage potentially made in heaven perhaps? Anyway, aside from that, I’m glad you liked it and please pop by again in the near future.

      Kind Regards

  11. Thanks for deciding to follow my greenbenchramblings. Hope you enjoy it. Malc

    1. No problem at all. I must say I did think I already was for some reason as I have seen a few of your posts in the past.

  12. Thanks for liking my post and by so doing introducing me to yours…a delightful place of wonderful photos and thoughts. I suspect I will be visiting often!

  13. Dear Tony,
    Thank you for liking my blog. I hadn’t expected a life sciences enthusiast to like anything a climate sceptic has to post, but it is very welcome nevertheless. The more usual suspects to like climate scepticism tend to be those that regularly read the Register website, a slightly irreverent news outlet with IT professionals in mind.
    I have skimmed your blog, in particular the posts tagged ‘climate change’. The graphs and your note in magenta after them was interesting.

    1. No problem, Thanks for visiting. I try to keep an open mind where possible regarding the climate issues affecting our planet. As you can tell, I often look to nature to attempt to seek out answers.

      Best Wishes


  14. Tony, thanks for coming over to my blog today. I had an about page and such but it all got hacked and I had to start all over…I will update this, but here is my other book blog which tells more about me: http://getreadingnow.org
