The Lyons Den: analternativenaturalhistoryofsussex.blogspot.com
An Alternative Natural History of Sussex. This blog shows the highlights of my day to day findings as a naturalist and ecologist living and working in Sussex. Delivered with a pinch of nihilism, a dash of sarcasm and absolutely no tweeness, here is my attempt to show natural history as it really is: Brutal, beautiful, uncompromising and fascinating... and occasionally ridiculous.

Secret Nature: markcolvin.blogspot.co.uk
This blog shows the highlights of my findings as an entomologist and naturalist living in West Sussex. Any views expressed are mine and not neccessarily those of others. My main areas of interest are invertebrates, birds, mammals and, more recently, the marine flora and fauna. I try to spend as much time as possible in the field and am passionate about conservation of the natural world. I currently sit on the committee of Sussex Butterfly Conservation, where I have recently taken on the role of Editor of their Annual Butterfly Report - so hopefully not too many typos!
