This is Duncan and Sally Hutt’s blog for work related matters although the views expressed are our own and do not necessarily represent the organisations we work for (either in paid employment or as volunteers).
Duncan Hutt works for Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
In October 2010 we embarked on a sabbatical to do voluntary work on the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) for the Turks and Caicos National Trust and the National Museum. We returned to England in February 2011, back to our paid employment but still maintain links with the TCI.
While much of what we do and write about is local to Northumberland we also look at environmental and wildlife issues when we travel elsewhere in the UK as well as on trips further afield such as on our 2013 trip to Kenya.
We make every effort to identify species correctly and use scientific names where appropriate. Some groups are challenging when it comes to identification and mistakes can happen. Please let us know if you spot an error or are suspicious about a stated identification. We send records to appropriate records centres where they exist so corrections are always welcome.

We are happy to be contacted about use of these photographs and are normally happy for them to be used with a few simple conditions. Where they are for commercial purposes we normally ask for an appropriate donation to a suitable charity of our choice. Please use the Contact Us page.
