We are always on the lookout for new writers, photographers and illustrators for the blog!
The motivation could be a strong personal interest or hobby or perhaps as part of a school or college project. The blog has had over 62,000 visits so far so it’s an excellent place to get profile.
By taking a look at the various articles that have been published you can get a good idea of the style and typical level we’d like. Here are some popular examples:
Butterflies: Peter Martin has contributed a fascinating series of posts on butterflies at the Pond – see here.
Birds and other wildlife: Peter Hutchins wrote a post on the 42 species he saw on a 1.5 hour walk round the Pond! See here.
Colin Gray’s article on bees, written in 2008, is still the most popular article written!
Fish – we’d really appreciate an author on any aspect of this subject as we have very few articles so far!
Regarding photography at the Pond, we have a site on Flickr that you might want to join or take a look at. This site was set up to cover general Fleet Pond Society events as well as wildlife and pond scenes.
You can also follow Fleet Pond Society on Twitter.
