I’m a writer and photographer living in London, England. On this blog I publish photographs, prose pieces and the odd poem highlighting nature, its proximity and great meaning to me in my life and hopefully to you and yours.

I am the author of a booklet of poems called I am living with the animals. You can read more about it here.

Public appearances

I lead walks on a variety of natural history subjects both professionally and as a volunteer, covering bats, birds, trees, butterflies and wildflowers. It is always a pleasure to encounter first-hand the passion and interest people have for wildlife and the natural environment. It gives me great hope about the conservation of wildlife. Here are links to some public appearances I’ve made in film and print:

Wildlife conservation at Sydenham Hill Wood – London Wildlife Trust

A Springtime Walk in the Woods – BBC Nature

BBC Summer of Wildlife – Sydenham Hill Wood bat walk
