Sharing a laugh with Sir David Attenborough and Young Birder Birdgirl Mya-Rose Craig
at The State of Nature Report Launch

I love these two photographs of me with Sir David Attenborough and feel really lucky to have had the chance to meet him.  The first is just a great photograph of both of us and the second photograph is brilliant as it captures the laugh we had together about how he was the oldest person at the event and I was the youngest.

Today I am also celebrating having 1.5 million views on my blog. It's unbelievable and something that I never expected in a million years.  The most read blog post is still the one on sexism in birding and nature conservation with a huge 25,000 views. So thank you to everyone who reads my posts.
