Get The Kids Out & Teach Them Wildlife

get kids out to learn about wildlife

When my daughter was aged four my wife heard her whispering to her best friend. “Do you know, Reagan”, she said “My dad can go invisible”. Reagan’s eyes widened. “I’ve watched him do it. He puts on a special white suit and walks out into a field with snow on it and then he just disappears. He’s just magic.” She was describing my snow camouflage, which I wear to get up close to wildlife during […]

How to Help Hedgehogs

Hedgehog painting by Robert E Fuller

Humble, cute and shockingly rare, hedgehogs need our help more than ever. These prickly creatures have been around for 15 million years and once roamed Britain alongside sabre tooth tigers and woolly mammoths. But since 2002 their decline has plummeted so rapidly they now face extinction. If the trend continues these lovable hogs will only exist in paintings like mine. I rescued this particular hedgehog baby, or hoglet, from my garden and grew so fond of […]

The Robert Fuller Gallery See paintings then enjoy a walk around Thixendale

See paintings of wildlife and then walk the Yorkshire Wolds to look for the real thing.

Whilst I appreciate the joy of cycling, and am always […]

A Collection of Paintings Featuring Wildlife in Spring

lapwing chick painted by Robert E Fuller

In this post I’ve curated a collection of my favourite paintings of wildlife in springtime. Set against backdrops of blossom, I’ve chosen the creatures you are most likely to see at this time of year and put them together for you here.This spring has been quite erratic with snow storms interspersed with the occasional traditionally warm spring day. But at last the sunshine has broken through. Easter is when the lambing season takes place in […]

How the sound of a curlew calling led to two new paintings

The unmistakable sound of a curlew’’s call rings out across the Yorkshire Wolds and moors brightens up the dullest of days. These waders come in from the coastal mud flats to raise their young over the summer months. Their arrival in spring is spectacular. The males circle the valleys, surveying their new territory and calling with a crescendo of notes as they rise steeply into the air with rapid wing beats before gracefully gliding back […]

Are Leverets the Real Easter Bunnies?

Leverets at Givendale, Art Print by Robert E Fuller

As Easter approaches and the world turns its attention to mythical bunnies, I’ve been thinking about the origin of the Easter bunny. Hares only visit their young for a few brief moments a day and it is said that in medieval times people were so unaccustomed to seeing a hare with its young they thought the lone leverets that they found out in the fields had appeared there by magic. It certainly must have seemed odd to come […]

Filming Wildlife for TV During the Blizzards of the Beast from the East

Robert Fuller and TV Mike Dilger

I was probably one of the few people in the country pleased to see the recent forecast for snow. More than two years ago BBC’s The One Show asked me to film a five minute piece about wildlife in winter and I have been praying for ‘proper’ snow ever since! I kept a close eye on the weather forecast. A camera crew and The One Show presenter, Mike Dilger, were poised to set off from […]

Wildlife Nest Cams at Fotherdale

I have more than 30 cameras postioned in my garden and the countryside surrounding my home and gallery so that at any one time I can watch the wildlife that visits. This network of secret cameras includes cameras hidden inside the nests of barn owls, tawny owls, kestrels and stoats relaying images 24 hours a day to screens inside my gallery. Every week I go through the footage and pick the best of it to […]

Stoat Cam

Welcome to my stoat cam where I collate the best clips of stoats from the cameras hidden inside and outside nest boxes in my garden. I’ve been watching stoats in my garden for four years now and have come to know the different characters well. I’ve even got nick names for my favourites: look out for Bandita, the female stoat that hit TV headlines at the beginning of the year after turning white in time […]

Tawny Owl Cam

Welcome to my ‘tawny owl cam’ where I collate the best clips of tawny owls from cameras hidden inside and outside my nest boxes. I’ve had a pair of tawny owls nesting in a row of sycamore trees in the valley just below my garden for many years now and each year they bring their newly fledged brood to feed from my bird table. But it is only since I installed the nest cams that […]

Rare Footage Cam

Welcome to my ‘Rare Footage Cam’ where I collate the best of my nest cam footage for you in a series of short films. Each year I begin a new wildlife project in order to collect reference material for my paintings and since I’ve begun to use cameras hidden inside animal nests I’ve been uncovering some amazing secrets of how different species behave when they are hidden from view. So far my revelations have included […]
