"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

One Year Old Today!

I have been getting a sense of deja vu recently whenever I do a blog posting on the nesting blue tits and it reminded me that I first started this blog a year ago today.

I am not sure how many people are regular visitors and how many just find the blog by accident through a google search. The popularity of my posts on fossils suggest quite a few are the latter!

Using the statistics supplied by Blogger most of my visitors are from the UK, next on the list (about 25% of the amount from the UK) are from the US. Third in the "Table" are the Netherlands followed by Canada and Australia.

Again using Blogger Statistics the Fossil posts take up 4 of the top ten most popular posts. The most popular post of all is "Fossils, Part 3: Graptolites and Stromatolites". In second place is "Its my 100th Post" followed by "Tour of the Hall" and then in third and fourth place are "Fossils, Part 2: Orthoceras and Belemnites" and "Spring in the Garden" respectively. For whatever reason its nice to know that people are visiting my blog.

A big thanks to my Followers and all those who leave comments and to everyone who has helped me with identifications.
