There’s no better week than Volunteers’ Week to introduce you to our new volunteer and wildlife blogger Andy Pay.
Andy has recently moved to Burntisland with his wife Helen - all the way from Cornwall! After living there for over 30 years they felt it was time for a change, and with family in Edinburgh it was the perfect opportunity. They are thoroughly enjoying their new home and love that they are so close to the beach and countryside, and are enjoying exploring it.
Andy is a keen bird watcher, but in recent years he’s branched out into other wildlife, especially butterflies, moths, dragonflies and (his current passion) hoverflies! After a recent visit to The Ecology Centre and chatting to him about the site and all the different types of wildlife here, he was keen to get involved.
Speaking to Andy he said “I love taking photographs of all the creatures I see – it’s so much easier (and cheaper!) in the digital age. I was looking for a local project to become involved with as a volunteer and I’m so pleased that I’ve found that niche at The Ecology Centre”.
We’re really excited to have Andy on board as our first ‘blogger’ – he will be bringing us regular insights, pictures and information about all the different types of wildlife around Kinghorn Loch. Look out for his first blog this week. We hope you enjoy it!
