Many of the limited edition owl art prints in this collection feature owls living in my garden. I favour a detailed style to capture the individual character of these magnificent birds. Barn Owl Art Prints Barn owls are my favourite owls. I love the way they glide over grassy fields or perch silently on fence posts with their white feathers glowing against the evening sky.   Barn Owl On Lookout | Limited Edition Print | […]

Feb 2019 Update – Finding, Digging & Defending A Nest What’s new this month The tawny owls are still uncertain where to nest. Read on to see them flit between Beech Stump and Ash Stump. And look out for a fascinating clip showing how these owls use both claw and wing to dig out scrapes inside these boxes. Meanwhile they are also defending their nest choices from invading birds of prey – like kestrels. Click […]

From my studio window, I have a great view over the Yorkshire Wolds. I like to keep my French windows wide open for as long as the weather allows. At this time of year, I often find myself distracted from my easel by the autumn bird migration.  As huge flocks of birds fly overhead in formation, I can’t help but put my paintbrush down to admire them. See short eared owls during the autumn migration […]

The baby barn owls and kestrel chicks in my garden are growing up fast. I’ve been keeping record of their development on my live Nest Cam pages. Scroll down to find out how to check in to see them reach those all important milestones: from first feathers through first squabbles to first flights! Stories from the kestrel nest The kestrels chicks have now fledged but they are still hanging about the nest site where I have […]

Owl’s cool off from summer heat wave in a ‘hoot tub’ As temperatures soared to record levels here in UK, a pair of tawny owls began using my garden pond as their own personal ‘hoot tub’. The owls returned nightly – and unusually also in broad daylight – to swim and bathe in the pond. Watch them below.  If owls could be said to be washing under their armpits, I’d say these two were! Look how […]

Enjoy the story of what happened with the tawny owls that live in my garden in 2018. Here I have collated 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 […]

I have an enormous old tree stump that I hoisted many years ago into the branches of a sycamore tree outside my living room window in the hope of attracting owls to nest in it. Over the years it has been home to barn owls, kestrels and tawny owls. And I have painted them again and again perched at its gnarled entrance. Then this month a surveillance camera I have trained onto the stump captured […]

Followers of my blog will know how I have installed cameras in custom-made nest boxes throughout my garden and the countryside beyond so that I can follow the individual stories of the animals and birds that I paint. This year the tawny owl pair I was watching faced a tragic loss. But what happened next made up for it. I have pieced the story of this year’s breeding season together into one watchable video for […]

Barn owls populations on the Yorkshire Wolds are the healthiest I’ve seen in a long time and, after a number of years in which their future seemed uncertain, I’m celebrating the good news by sharing my collection of paintings of these beautiful white owls. I’m particularly fond of barn owls and have worked hard over the years to protect them here where the altitudes mean their survival is precarious. Read my latest blog post on […]

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 […]
