After many months of trying, we moved house in August, to a large village on the eastern edge of the New Forest toward the southern end of “the Waterside”: the more populated area along the West of Southampton Water. Our new house is in a quiet location, and we can walk along an old lane (with no vehicle access) into open country and then on for miles. The sea is close. The Solent is about two miles away and Southampton Water is even closer.
The last few months have been a whirlwind of work on the house and settling into the community and area but things are easing enough now for my thoughts to turn back to blogging. I hope to be setting up the meteor camera and weather station again soon, and I am already exploring how very different the wildlife is here than Surrey.
It seemed like a good time to change the name and appearance of the blog, especially as the old theme is no longer being developed. Things may change as I tweak them until things settle down.
This blog has been inactive for too long. I hope updates will be far more frequent now.
