About Monty’s ‘Reflections’ Blog

ABOUT MONTY’s  ‘REFLECTIONS’  BLOG.

POST entries.  Firstly, thank you for visiting my website and blog.  Posts on my blog site, mainly centre – but not solely, upon concerns for the state of the environment and wildlife conservation, both in the UK and globally.  Wildlife and landscape conservation are subjects that I’ve been involved with throughout most of my working-life.

Posts are mainly about current debates and concerns, but also garnished with my own observations and experiences and associated political stories circulating at the time. Having now been retired since February 2017, subjects posted are now more wide-ranging, for example, shipping.  I do hope you will enjoy and perhaps be informed by at least some of the posts.  If you so wish, please leave a comment on any article that you may have found of interest, feedback is always of interest.

PAGES entries, will be uploaded from time to time, which will feature longer, more in-depth articles on a particular subject.  Select a Page entry by clicking on the chosen title, below the ‘Reflections’ title page banner.

On the right-hand side of the Reflections home page you can: view Recent Posts; Archive of Posts; view the list of 17 Categories –                                                Brexit,  Climate Change,   Conservation,   Cultural,  Energy,   Development,  Farming,  Food,   Globalisation,   Health,   Historical,   Politics,  Pony Grazing,   Re-Cycling and Waste,  Shipping,   Sightings,  Weather.
