Until July 2017, documenting the seasons of coastal Dorset. I'm a complete amateur so don't trust I'm always right. If ever you see I'm wrong - whether with identifications or in anything else - do say! Meanwhile . . . I've now moved to Halifax in West Yorkshire. Click on the link below to collect the new URL.

What is a Stuck Foot Post?

A stuck foot post is where you plant your foot firmly in a roughly random place and see what you can see without moving. Best is when you plant both feet. If you are on a slope or some other kind of difficult ground you may need to move the other foot for the sake of balance - but you mustn't move the 'stuck' foot. You can bend your body this way and that. You can lean forward and twist at the waist - but you mustn't swivel that stuck-foot.

Here's an example of a Stuck Foot Post - Stuck Foot Post in July

If you would like to share your stuck foot posts with others, there'll be a link box for this on Loose and Leafy from time to time. Because of various stops and starts (due to broken camera and demised laptop and those kinds of things) the intention of writing Stuck Foot Posts has gone somewhat by the way. But the intention is not to drop it completely. As soon as posts can be guaranteed again, I'll put a new list of dates here and possibly / probably put a link box on the blog so you can join in.

The links can include articles posted in preceding months - you simply put a date beside your entry.

If you'd like to be listed here as an occasional Stuck-Foot-Blogger - let me know and I'll put a link to your blog here. (One Stuck-Foot post a year is enough to go on the list - though more would be . . . merrier!)
