The moment a hare visits its young is one of nature’s most intimate secrets. This is the story of the time I was lucky enough to capture it on camera in my garden. Uncovering a secret  As I crossed the woodland behind my art gallery I heard something moving in a small clump of hazels. I looked up just in time to see a hare lollop away. I peered into the spot it had just […]

This is the extraordinary story of an only barn owl chick whose lonely, chequered, life was recorded on cameras hidden inside her nest. Read on for an owl drama that, looked at from a human perspective, spans love, loss, and even murder! Of course as a barn owl, all this is normal! Live Cameras in my Art Studio  Next to my drawing board sits a bank of TV screens streaming live footage from inside animal […]

As I sit at my easel painting, two playful stoats bound about on a TV monitor beside me. Far from a distraction, these happy animals lift my spirits and make the long days at my easel go faster. Hand-Rearing a Tiny Stoat Kit I have known and cared for both since they were tiny kits and even hand-reared one – a female, this one was just four weeks when she was referred to me by Mustelid […]

  I have just finished a new painting featuring a kestrel perched proudly at the entrance to her nest. Painted in acrylics, it’s a portrait of a particularly plucky female whose life I have followed closely on my wildlife cameras this season. The first time I saw her She and her mate appeared in my garden late last winter and began an intense courtship. I was delighted when they went on to inspect the array […]

connecting to nature: sharing with wildlife

A New Climbing Frame Also Becomes a Playground for Wildlife Well before lockdown, when such things were possible, my wife Vick announced that she had found a bargain second-hand climbing framing for our daughters on Facebook. It was priced at £200 for a towered wooden structure with connecting walkways, swings, slides and a climbing wall. The wood alone would have cost more than that! And so, after a bit of arm twisting, we made several […]

Click here to see a weekly update of paintings these photos have inspired. November 21st, 2020 Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) Meet the Models Sparrowhawks are formidable predators.

Birds Flock Outside My Window I have a commanding view over four miles of one of the most beautiful parts of the Yorkshire Wolds from my art studio. This landscape is where I get a lot of my inspiration from for my paintings.

Badgers on Night Watch: Art Print by Robert E Fuller

Author:

As the clocks turn back this weekend, I for one won’t be sorry. I love being out in the dark listening for wildlife in the gloom. This is when the landscape turns monochrome and strangely beautiful and when I experience my closest encounters with wildlife. This is a time when my hearing becomes my primary sense and my landscape becomes my soundscape. After a lifetime of watching wildlife on a daily basis I’m already fairly attuned […]

Peregine Falcon (Falco Peregrinus) I watch peregrines in the wild for my paintings. Here’s what I’ve learned so far about the world’s fastest bird.   Peregrine Falcon Facts: The wandering bird The name peregrine falcon comes from the Latin word ‘peregrinus’, which means ‘wanderer’ or ‘pilgrim.
