It’s National Poetry Day today. Check out this poem about the demise of the Great Auk by Ogden Nash:
It’s National Read a Book Day today. To celebrate this, you can order any book from my website for £6 each until 12pm on Sunday. Have a good weekend of reading!
A fantastic new logo designed by CC Illustrations will help to give Aukid a new look.
Please reply to this blog with your comments about the logo and your ideas for any future adventures for Aukid and Park. Where woukd you like them to go and what adventures would you like to see them get up to?
It’s world Ocean’s Day today so we must ensure that we protect the Ocean both for our benefit and more importantly for the benefit of its occupants. Remember that Park and his friends need the ocean in order to survive!
Here we are all set up and raring to go. Come down if you’re in the area!
… The new book will be available in the Roche Victory Hall on Saturday. It would be lovely to see you there! Lots of fabulous craft stalls to look at.
Book 2 – Further Adventures for Aukid and Park have arrived today in both ordinary book and notebook form. The adventures in this book take our two intrepid travellers out of their comfort zone. How will it all end? Copies are available from this site, which will be updated shortly, and by messaging me privately. Happy Reading!
The first batch of Book 2 is arriving tomorrow! This is a ground-breaking ‘Notebook Edition’ of the book that allows you to write down your thoughts about the story, start to write your own story, draw pictures of Aukid and Park’s adventures or just use the blank pages in the book to write down your own personal notes.
I will let you know when they arrive. Watch this space!
A new study has revealed that the total number of seabirds on Lundy has now tripled to over 21,000 birds after the island was declared rat free in 2006. Manx shearwater are now at over 5,500 pairs and puffin numbers have gone from 13 birds to 375 🎉
We’re proud to work with our partners to look after the future of seabirds on this island.
Park the Puffin would be very happy to hear this if he wasn’t so involved with trying to find more Great Auks for Aukid! It’s great news though for his species.
Have a look at how Park’s puffin colony would behave. Warning: This has a high ‘cute’ factor!
