Quite often I’ve seen seven barn owls at once on the live camera, and I think there could be up to 10 owls out there most nights. So I’ve made a video below to show you the difference between some of the owls and created a ‘rogue’s gallery’ of our main characters below including tips so that […]

I have a painting of a grey seal pup propped against the easel in my studio that I am yet to finish. I was inspired to begin it after watching seals at Donna Nook, an RAF-owned beach in Lincolnshire. Every year between November and January huge numbers of these lumbering sea mammals haul themselves up on to this beach to give birth. It is the only place near here that one can really study them […]

Christmas shopping in York? Look up At this time of year the ancient city of York is usually humming with shoppers, heads bowed as they plough up and down the streets fixated on the job of getting ready for Christmas. But if you happen to find yourself amidst the throngs at St Nicholas market on Parliament Street at dusk, it’s worth taking a moment out from the hubbub to look up past the brightly-lit stalls […]
