2010 in review
WordPress sent me this information on this blog that might be of interest to those of you who post. It is beginning to generate some traffic which is good and I’m personally very pleased to see a few people are starting to use it for advice on species identfication as well as RFIs for countries, sites etc. But please do spread the word – this isn’t really meant to be a blog, but it is meant to be a forum which we can all use to share information and ask questions.
I got back from Madagascar yesterday – great trip with 42 different mammals in less than 2 weeks and nearly all of them new for me. A report will come soon. In the meantime happy new year to all of you
