Ibex sketch by Robert E Fuller

Author:

Braving avalanches in the French Alps in search of wild ibex and chamois Wildlife artist Robert E Fuller braves avalanches and rocky slopes to photograph ibex in the wild for his paintings. In March, the artist took a guided tour through knee deep snow drifts in Les Houches, near Chamonix in the French alps to see this region’s remarkable wildlife. I started drawing wildlife when I was 13 years old but it wasn’t until I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Leverets at Givendale, Art Print by Robert E Fuller

Author:

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 […]

Robert Fuller and TV Mike Dilger

Author:

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 […]

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 […]

Welcome to my Kestrel Cam where I collate the best video clips of the kestrel pair living in my garden from cameras hidden inside and outside my nest boxes. The male kestrel has lived here for 11 years now and I’ve followed his daily life for so long he has become an old friend. His nickname is Kes, after the kestrel in the Ken Loach feature film of the same name. Sadly Kes’ long-term partner died […]

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 […]

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 […]

Welcome to my barn owl cam where I collate the best clips of barn owls from  cameras hidden inside and outside my nest boxes. I have six or seven barn owls living in or near my garden and once one chooses a box to nest I watch it closely, getting to know its mate and the subsequent chicks. Scroll down to see the best of the footage of their story as I get it. My […]
