Too Wet To Woo! What to do if you find an owl chick

The relentless rain we’ve had this week reminds me of the day I had to rescue two chicks in the valley below my gallery after they got caught out in several days of rain. They had only just fledged and were soaked to the skin, their feathers stuck fast to their tiny bodies so that there was no way they could fly to safety. The wet owlets were in danger of getting perilously cold so […]

Bringing Up Baby Wrens: How I watched a hard working wren mum raise her chicks.

Raising young can be hard work for any parent, but among the animal parents I most admire are those that won’t be deterred from the job at hand. Like the female wren I watched one year who worked tirelessly to feed her chicks despite the efforts of her mate to distract her. I’m currently exhibiting a new range of paintings inspired by watching animals parent in the wild and I have categorised the different parenting […]

Stories from Inside a Barn Owl Nest

I’ve been following the story of a barn owl pair on my nestcams throughout this breeding season and in this post I plan to tell their story from the moment the male first found the nest site last autumn to the day the young chicks fledge – and beyond. I plan to keep adding video clips as I get them. Below is the story so far: JUNE 22ND I now have seven barn owl chicks […]

How a farmer’s lapwing conservation efforts brought about two new paintings

Lapwing and chicks, painted by Robert E Fuller

More farmers are taking up the challenge of protecting the countryside for wildlife, with an increasing number involved in stewardship schemes. A few years ago I visited a farmer I know in Melbourne, Jeremy Kemp, who was awarded one of DEFRA’s Higher Level Stewardship Schemes. He has put aside two five acre strips for breeding lapwings and had invited me to come and see three nesting pairs on one of these dedicated areas. Lapwings are […]

The day I went down to film Springwatch Unsprung Live

I had a wonderful day yesterday. I travelled down to Sherborne Esate in Gloucestershire from my home in Thixendale, North Yorkshire. I went down to be filmed on BBC Springwatch Unsprung, which is the live analysis programme into fun wildlife stories. The Springwatch team had asked me to take down one of my original paintings, so I decided to take down my new acrylic painting of a kingfisher, below.   They also asked me to […]

How about a ‘super stoat’ to rescue South Georgia’s penguins?

I’ve been invited into the studios of BBC Springwatch for their indepth analysis programme, Unsprung. I was asked to bring in an idea for my ideal ‘fantastical animal or animal of the future’. I’m going to suggest a ‘Super Stoat’. Stoats are one of the few species that will kill rats – and rats are threatening to destroy one of my favourite species, the penguins of South Georgia. If I could breed a ‘super stoat’, […]

The Story Behind my TV Kingfisher Film

Wildlife Artist Research Robert E Fuller

I’ve been filming a kingfisher pair inside their underground nest from cameras hidden in a box I made especially for them and the footage has been so groundbreaking I featured on BBC Springwatch. I’ve felt like a bit of a spy looking in on their daily interactions. My last blog tells the story up to the point that the first eggs were hatched. Click here to read it. After two weeks of incubation the male […]

New Exhibition: Sneak Peak of my Brand New Originals

I thought you’d like to see all my very latest originals for my exhibition Bringing up Baby which opens on Saturday at my gallery at Thixendale. Read more about the exhibition here. I was able to watch this lapwing brood its chicks thanks to a stewardship scheme on a farm in East Yorkshire. Lapwings lay on arable fields and their nests can often be destroyed without protection such as those afforded by these stewardship schemes. Read more […]
