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 […]

As temperatures across the UK soar to record highs, heating up the countryside in the day and bringing dramatic thunderstorms at night, the owls in my garden are developing strategies to cope. So far the tawny owls are cooling off in my garden ponds, and their chicks have even adopted my daughters’ paddling pool to bathe in, but the barn owls are more unsettled – especially by the thunder. The family of tawny owls living in […]

On the wooded slope of a valley that sweeps away from my home and gallery in Thixendale, grows one of England’s rarest species: a magnificent old elm tree. This big, beautiful, tree is one of just a handful of living elms left in the country. At one time these grand trees dominated the English landscape.
