Thanks to Blue Dot Festival for having me for a couple of family shows. Fossil Frontiers has now played at Edinburgh Science Festival, Cheltenham Science Festival and Blue Dot. Next up: GREEN MAN FESTIVAL and WILDERNESS FESTIVAL (where I'll be compering the Bloomsbury Sigma Science tent on the afternoon and also performing Animal Sex: The Underwater Edition. Links take you to information on events. If you're going to one of these festival please do come over and say hi! P.S
Hi all, just a quickie to say an enormous thank you for all your kind words about this piece about our late-cat, Dustin. The Guardian tell me it was a really well shared piece - half-a-million page views! (I confess, far more than the rest of my stuff). Thanks for your emails and messages - glad that his dark (and fragile) heart can be memorialised in some small way online. J xx
Thanks to the Hampton Court Flower Festival for inviting me down for a whole week to talk wildlife ponds with visitors. At our make-shift pond I managed to pond-dip with more than 2,000 families during the week, and talk to thousands more about ponds and the important role they play in nature. This was all part of my continued work with the RHS and the Wildlife Trust on their amazing Wild About Gardens campaign. (Don't forget, The Wildlife Pond Book is coming in September!).
