But in spite of all its dazzling brilliance, it is also deeply secretive. As a wildlife artist, I made it my mission to find out more. I built an artificial nest box and watched as a kingfisher pair raised their chicks inside. Here are five of the fascinating facts I […]

A precious few animals in the UK wear white for winter A handful of animal species have the remarkable ability to turn white in winter in order to match the snows of the season and the transition, which in the UK applies to ptarmigan – a genus of bird related to grouse – mountain hares and stoats, is something that fascinates me.

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 […]
