My gallery is the best art gallery in Yorkshire, according to a new TripAdvisor guide to the 10 best art galleries in Yorkshire! Located in the remote Yorkshire Wolds village of Thixendale it even tops giants such as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield. TripAdvisor, which uses visitor reviews to rank public venues, awarded The Robert Fuller Gallery a 5* rating – enough to rank top of its guide to the […]

The shrill call of a young cuckoo is a sound that I don’t hear that often but when I do I recognise it immediately. It has long been an ambition of mine to photograph the chick of this unusual parasitic bird, which flies all the way from Africa to lay its egg in another bird’s nest. I last had the chance 20 years ago. (Read about that experience by clicking here.) And then again during a […]

As I look back at the pictures I’ve painted in 2017, I’m reminded of all the adventures I’ve had out watching wildlife this year. It’s been incredible. My personal highlight was watching kingfishers inside their nest and as you can see by the pictures posted below I was so inspired by the experience I produced a flurry of paintings of these beautiful birds over the year. But it hasn’t been just about kingfishers. The stoats […]

Woodpeckers usually nest either in dark woodland or high up in the trees where they are difficult to photograph. But a few years ago a friend called me to tell me about a woodpecker nest that was only 15ft up a  in an isolated tree where I could easily photograph it. All I needed was a hide up to be able to watch the nest without disturbing the woodpeckers. My friend helped me make a tower […]

As the snow fell last week I was reminded of one winter morning in similar December snows. I had woken early enough to see the thick blanket of snow lit up by moonlight. My first job each morning was to light the log burners. The cold air took my breath away as I stepped out on to the porch to fetch the wood. The thermometer on the wall read  -14ºC. After a quick breakfast I […]

Fidget my pet weasel

Author:

I’ve been watching a family of wild weasels in my garden for two years, monitoring their lives closely via surveillance cameras hidden in the shrubbery. It’s been fascinating following their story through the seasons, from the moment the adult pair mated, to the birth of the kits and on to watching the young on their first hunting lesson. I’ve learned some interesting things about these tiny mammals along the way. For instance how early the […]

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 […]
