Hi,I’m Nigel Heptinstall and I was for 20 years, until getting sacked in September 2015, The Outdoors Correspondent for The Ackrills group of newspapers which serves Harrogate, Knaresborough Nidderdale, Ripon and Wetherby. Apparently they couldn’t afford the sixty quid a week I was paid! I used to write a column championing wildlife and environment issues. This blog is a replacement because so many folk were upset at my exclusion from the local paper and I felt obliged to provide a substitute. I hope to talk about wildlife, archaeology and the environment and look forward very much to receiving contributions, emails and/or photos from you. Let’s show our enjoyment and support for wildlife. Tell me what you or your group is doing, tell me about any events you may be having, tell me about your sightings¬† and let’s spread the word.

  1. Great to hear from you, I look forward to sharing your enthusiasm for everything (well almost) outdoors. Like you I am a complete novice, so hope I get the links right.
