Park Geese, West Park, Wolverhampton – by Paul Kielty

Here are all the blogs, written by Nadia Kingsley, as part of the Urban Birds Project, aka DIVERSIFLY.

Click on the purple heading to read any specific blog which includes interesting nuggets about birds, quotes from books, poems and artwork I found interesting online.

The book DIVERSIFLY will be available to buy from January 2018

You will find some really interesting PODCASTS from some of our top Nature Poets and an Urban Birder  – free to listen to, and download, on the website from January 2018 as well.
