About Me

My name is Megan Shersby and I am a naturalist, blogger and bookworm.

As a young conservationist and naturalist, I am a member of a fantastic group called A Focus On Nature, and I am a committee member as their Online and Social Media Manager.

I admit to being an improving amateur in many areas of wildlife ID and knowledge, there is just so much out there! However, I am a strong advocate that you can never stop learning, and you should never stop learning.

You can also find me on Twitter, but consider yourself warned in advance that I tweet a lot about wildlife, as well as Game Of Thrones, Bake Off and my cat.

Letter to the Welsh Government

If you've met me in person, you will know already that I can be rather opinionated. Particularly if the topic is concerning nature, feminism or cakes vs biscuits. Since my blog is about nature, I tend to only comment on the former here. Although…

Fire In My Heart

I had a rather cool evening earlier this week. Now that the evenings are both lighter and warmer, and it feels like summer is not far around the corner (with the exception of this weekend which has decided to be cold, brr!), I can start going…

How A Nomad Helped My Confidence

This week saw my first office day at the Wildlife Trust BCN as a Volunteer Communications Officer. Alongside writing a piece for their blog, assisting with a competition and learning more about how the communications team functions, there was…

The 3Bs - Birds, Bugs And Bluebells

Birds I journeyed south recently on a voyage of familial connection. Also known as visiting Hertfordshire to see my parents and my grandmother. Whilst there, I embarked on a task that I hadn't attempted for a long time - making a bird box.…

Bugs For My Birthday

It was my birthday at the beginning of this week - not a big birthday, but a high enough number to make me realise that 30 is creeping closer. Although to be honest, I'm quite excited. They (the mysterious 'They'!) say that your thirties are…

We're All Going To The Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

A hen do in London meant that I visited an old workplace of mine, ZSL London Zoo, for an afternoon. I should specify, it wasn't my own hen do! It was a superb afternoon (and hen do in general), and it was very nostalgic for me. Particularly…
