I arrived at RSPB Snettisham just as the sun rose above the horizon. The air was pleasantly cool, and the calls of arriving pink-footed geese and a late chiffchaff filled the air as I made the long walk to the coast of The Wash.

I was still making my way…

The mist rolled in over the top of pine trees and descended down the cliff face, hanging just above the surface of the water. Not ideal weather conditions for cetacean spotting most would think.

Because I do not live close to the coast, I become excited at the prospect of…

White-tailed sea eagles rule the skies around the Scottish Isles. Both these and golden eagles have suffered declines and near extinction in the last few hundred years, but are slowly being reintroduced to the rest of the British Isles in the hope that the population of both eagle species would…

These stories are more detailed versions of what I talk about in my Youtube video titled ‘My Wildlife Encounters on the Isle of Mull’. I often find that the way I talk about experiences with wildlife in a verbal manner differs from how I end up writing about them. So…

I originally planned to photograph a different owl species that afternoon; barn owls are a common sighting along the riverbank and country roads close to where I live. …

It has been a place of great wonder. A place that ignited my love for the natural world. I’ve found many treasures here, and by and by it always provides a moment of pure joy. This moment was no exception. The autumn sun pierced through the trunks and branches, cascading…

The immeasurable amount of seabirds that cloaked the sea cliffs was an overwhelming sight; the first time I visited Bempton Cliffs last summer. Streaks of white, black and grey zoomed back and forth across the cliff face and each individual bird call combined to a air-filling chorus of courtship and…
