I Found a DEAD DOLPHIN | Here’s What to Do

After the recent storms, I took a walk along the nearby beach and found a carcass of a dolphin beached by the stormy sea. Sadly in recent years, an unusually high number of common dolphins are being washed ashore in this part of the world. I might devote a separate video or podcast to this issue. In the meantime watch me inspecting the carcass and submitting a report about the stranding.

Over a year ago I reviewed a Garmin Instinct rugged GPS watch. In fact, I made that video shortly after I got my hands on it. It was a new release from Garmin at the time and so I couldn’t tell you anything about its durability and long term performance. Fast forward 14 months of heavy outdoor use and here’s how it holds up. Also a few things you might want to know before you buy it.

Episode 62: Whittled Away, a Photography Series, with Patrick Cross

We have talked about the book “Whittled Away – Ireland’s Vanishing Nature” twice already. In episode 20 our guest was the author, Pádraic Fogarty, who was also featured in episode 35 where I brought you the recording of his talk under the same title as the book.

Today I talk with Patrick Cross about his photographic project based on that book. We also talk about photography (the outdoors flavour), human impact on the environment and natural history.
