I am expecting two tawny owl chicks to hatch next week, and I hope to share the moment they emerge from their eggshells, all feather-wet and wobbly, on my YouTube livestream. The eggs were laid in mid-January, the earliest I have known tawny owls to have a clutch here in Thixendale. Normally, this species lay in late February or March. Filming Tawny Owls in the Nest Tawny owls are very secretive, so I’ve only managed […]

Barney was one of my favourite owls here at Fotherdale. He had lived here for more than years but sadly, on the 23rd of October, I saw him for what would be the last time. What Happened to Barney? I don’t expect I will ever know what happened to Barney. He may have sustained one too many attacks, he certainly had a great many clashes with the tawny owls that also live here during his […]

There are so many barn owls in my garden it can be really difficult to tell who’s who. Quite often I’ve seen seven barn owls at once on the live camera, and I think there could be up to 10 owls out there most nights. So I’ve made a video below to show you the difference between some of the owls and created a ‘rogue’s gallery’ of our main characters below including tips so that […]

A Christmas Romance As I paint, I can see pair of courting barn owls on a TV monitor next to my easel. The owls are standing side by side, the feathers of their folded wings gently touching. Their secret love story is being relayed from video cameras hidden in a nest box located high in a sycamore tree 200 metres from my art studio. The pairing of these two owls marks a happy end to […]

Live Cameras in my Art Studio  Next to my drawing board sits a bank of TV screens streaming live footage from inside animal […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
