Science is going well - the plants have grown and I am expecting to be conducting some further biogeochemical laboratory analysis soon. It is another great excuse to spend some more time up in the GroDome - a place I absolutely love. I am also trying to sit down and get a load of writing up done... which is proving the trickier part of it all!
Despite the busy everyday work schedule, I am still thankfully managing to get out into the outdoors! I have had some lovely walks in the countryside, Leigh Woods on the outskirts of Bristol was a recent highlight. We even saw a Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major)!
I have also been down to Dartmoor and ticked off a few more tors; the highest summit High Willhays (621m), Yes Tor (619m) and a couple of others. It was wintery and brisk but the sun was out - absolutely beautiful. I have been on a fair few exciting adventures recently and have a load of blog posts to start preparing and posting up. Watch this space! :)
