Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day and a timely reminder that one of Britain’s most beautiful species needs our help. Red squirrels are an increasingly rare sight in England. Their decline is mainly due to  a deadly pox carried by grey squirrels. But the loss of conifer woodland across the country is also a major factor  since red squirrels like to feed on the seeds in the pine cones.   Plans are afoot for a new forest along the […]

Welcome to a new year of my ‘Wildlife Photo of the Week’ slot! Each week I pick a photograph from the wildlife studies I take for my paintings. I spend so much of my time out in the field watching and photographing animals in the wild that when I get home I usually have 1000s of pictures to sort through. Sometimes the poses I capture end up being replicated in my paintings, but some of […]

A winter’s night can be one of the most challenging experiences if you are a bird. Small birds can lose up to 20pc of their body weight overnight in the cold. To cope, they feed-up as much as they can in the hours before nightfall. If you watch the birds in your garden each afternoon the feeding frenzy that takes place during these crucial hours can feel like a race. The smaller the bird, the […]

On the wooded slope of a valley that sweeps away from my home and gallery in Thixendale, grows one of England’s rarest species: a magnificent old elm tree. This big, beautiful, tree is one of just a handful of living elms left in the country. At one time these grand trees dominated the English landscape. But more than 60 million were killed in an epidemic of Dutch Elm Disease that all but obliterated the species. […]

As I look back at the pictures I’ve painted in 2017, I’m reminded of all the adventures I’ve had out watching wildlife this year. It’s been incredible. My personal highlight was watching kingfishers inside their nest and as you can see by the pictures posted below I was so inspired by the experience I produced a flurry of paintings of these beautiful birds over the year. But it hasn’t been just about kingfishers. The stoats […]

Woodpeckers usually nest either in dark woodland or high up in the trees where they are difficult to photograph. But a few years ago a friend called me to tell me about a woodpecker nest that was only 15ft up a  in an isolated tree where I could easily photograph it. All I needed was a hide up to be able to watch the nest without disturbing the woodpeckers. My friend helped me make a tower […]

As the snow fell last week I was reminded of one winter morning in similar December snows. I had woken early enough to see the thick blanket of snow lit up by moonlight. My first job each morning was to light the log burners. The cold air took my breath away as I stepped out on to the porch to fetch the wood. The thermometer on the wall read  -14ºC. After a quick breakfast I […]

Today I’ve put together my ultimate list of animal art gifts to help you with your Christmas shopping. And I’ve got something to suit every budget, so what are […]

I have an enormous old tree stump that I hoisted many years ago into the branches of a sycamore tree outside my living room window in the hope of attracting owls to nest in it. Over the years it has been home to barn owls, kestrels and tawny owls. And I have painted them again and again perched at its gnarled entrance. Then this month a surveillance camera I have trained onto the stump captured […]
