Winter days to get out for...

30 August 2016

Have you ever wondered what it means when you get that "Out of office" notification? 

Sometimes it means that I've had a change to get out into the fynbos to do some field work! Today the Hawequas mountains of Limietberg Reserve. A great day out!

Frog monitoring in China

11 August 2016

Thanks to Supen Wang and my friends in Prof Yi ming Li's lab at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, I joined a frog monitoring trip on the great plains of eastern China

It was great fun whizzing around on the dirt roads on these electric scooters!
