Launching the new "The Oak By The Rife Local Patch" Twitter feed!
Do you use Twitter?
There is now an easy way to keep up-to-date with The Oak By The Rife blog, and no excuse to miss a link, or an exciting wildlife moment! Just pop onto Twitter and give the new Oak By The Rife Twitter-feed a follow at "@OakByTheRife"! Share in wildlife sightings direct from the patch, a daily (hopefully!) photo and of course, the links to every new blog post.
Regular readers of this blog will know that I find enormous pleasure and fascination in watching wildlife on my local patch. Nature is a passion of mine, but I find much of that pleasure comes from being able to share my experiences with others and inspire them to find similar awe and intrigue in the natural world around them, where ever they are.
So of course, it isn't all about me, or even all about my blog. I'd love to hear from you, whether you share my patch or part of it, or live many miles away. Have you had similar moments in nature, or experienced something that amazed, baffled or entertained you? Please do share it!
I have learnt much of my knowledge of nature from other people and continue to do so every day, and I am more than happy to share what I know with anyone who asks questions - and I know I will be asking many questions myself!
Some of you may already be familiar with my long running Twitter-feed "@SophiEcoWild", don't worry, it's not going anywhere! This new twittering is simply linked more directly with the nature of The Oak By The Rife patch.
At "@OakByTheRife" I plan to share a daily(ish!) photo from the patch, inspired by previous Twitter challenges such as #100DaysofNature and #30DaysWild, and most of these will be taken either on a pocket compact camera or my smart phone (occasionally my SLR) as I want to capture what could be anyone's #EverydayNature.
If you are not a Twitter user, please do not panic, I will certainly continue to share my blogposts in all the usual places including the BBC Magazine's Local Patch Reporter's forum at http://www.discoverwildlife.com/forum/local-patch-reporters-f47.html
I hope you will be able to join me and follow @OakByTheRife in this new adventure; see you there!
