I was probably one of the few people in the country pleased to see the recent forecast for snow. More than two years ago BBC’s The One Show asked me to film a five minute piece about wildlife in winter and I have been praying for ‘proper’ snow ever since! I kept a close eye on the weather forecast. A camera crew and The One Show presenter, Mike Dilger, were poised to set off from […]

Over the years, I have put up nearly 200 nest boxes for owls and kestrels and I have found some designs to be more successful than others. Attracting a tawny owl into a nest box depends on a few factors: the availability of natural nest sites in your area and the available habitat and prey.Tawny owls live in wooded or partially wooded areas; you even get them in large gardens and parks in towns and […]

I was in the greenhouse preparing seed beds with my daughter Lily when she announced, in a judgmental tone that only young children can command, that the greenhouse was ‘full of cobwebs’. I explained that I left them there deliberately for the long-tailed tits to use to build their nests from. She was fascinated as I showed her how these beautiful little birds weave a soft, delicate nest out of lichen, moss or sheep’s wool […]

Sorry I’ve been offline for a little while – the thing is I’ve caught the painting bug. My wife Victoria & baby daughter Lily have been away and its been so quiet, I’ve gone painting crazy! I’m normally winding down around now, framing and hanging the originals and tidying up my studio. But instead, (for some reason) I’ve started 8 new sketches of badgers, hares and stags. So I’ve got my work cut out if […]

I’ve just finished these two in time for the Christmas Exhibition. Don’t know how they’ll go down, they’re a little different to my usual painting style.

It’s always interesting at an exhibition to see which original painting causes the biggest stir. This year I was suprised to see that it was this one of a Sparrowhawk and Woodpecker. I painted this in Spring following an unusual sighting in my garden. I was photographing birds from a hide when I heard the garden birds alarm calling. I knew straightaway it was a Sparrowhawk attack! I looked out and to my horror saw […]

Phew! The first weekend of the exhibition has been a busy one. Luckily there were no hiccups and everything went as planned. The falconry display was a big hit with visitors and I managed to escape for a few moments to take some flying shots of the birds in action. Minster Falconry who organise the displays had brought a barn owl, ferruginous buzzard, peregrine falcon, baby long eared owl and a lanner falcon. They’re going […]

The pressure is on now to get things ready for my summer exhibition. I’ve been working flat out at trying to finish a painting of a hare and her leverets as well as designing all the invitations and getting a new catalogue ready for the big day. The exhibition opens on June 13th and runs for two weeks until the 28th….phew! I’ll be ready for a holiday then…
