  • Blog Post: Mull's eagles have well and truly taken off

    Tucked away in today's Telegraph was a small story about an amazing achievement. White-tailed eagles on the Isle of Mull fledged ten young last year. Three hundred years ago Britain was home to more than 200 pairs of these stunning birds. Sadly, human persecution wiped them out early last century...
  • Blog Post: What goes round...

    My day started with a real bang the other morning, when my bike tyre exploded. Everyone stared, wondering if it had been a gunshot. Forced to find another way in to work, I took full advatage of being on the bus and tube with commuters to eavesdrop ... and the conversation was not typical for a grey...
  • Blog Post: Cockney Sparrow Count success

    Dig out the bunting and buy the ingredients for a celebratory cake, it may soon be time to party. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our 2012 house sparrow survey , updating one completed in 2002. We asked you to tell us where sparrows live in London so we could compare the findings...
  • Blog Post: Swift tourists visit Rainham

    Walking along one of the boardwalks at Rainham with the sun washing your face and nothing demanding your attention is, in my book, one of the greatest luxuries in the world. If you ever get the chance to experience this level of bliss, then treasure it. There's something primal about the wide...
  • Blog Post: I'm calling for a riot, a riot of colour!

    Wasn't the weekend glorious? Saturday was the first day this year I was able to get outdoors and tart-up my garden. I cut the grass, forked over borders, gathered up fallen leaves, cleared old growth, sowed some seeds and enjoyed coming across some of the things that share this space. There was...
  • Blog Post: Sowing seeds for a greener London

    Have you ever stared at the side profile of City Hall? For years now I've wanted to stick a sparrow's head on it's teardrop shape, as it it would make a wonderful giant sparrow. A monumental nod to the cockney sparra's brave and chirpy character and its similarity to the London...
  • Blog Post: Clackety clack, lets have some chat

    There's a rail-line at the bottom of my garden. I welcome the comforting rumble of trains carrying people to and from Liverpool Street. I also welcome the wildlife roaming the embankment; and the blankets of spring bluebells; the birds turning their heads as trains approach; and the cloaking canopies...
  • Blog Post: Animal lover

    My daughters laugh at me. Openly. I've checked my flies and they're closed; there's no spinach stuck between my teeth and no one drew a moustache on me whilst I dozed in my chair. So, I was forced to ask, 'what's so funny?' It's when I start to talk about nature and...
  • Blog Post: Trust your nature

    I was contacted by the Daily Mail this week about some photos they'd got of a fox looking for an easy meal at Barnes. Nothing unusual in that; it's what foxes do. It was what happened next that was fun. All the ducks, geese , coots and cormorants ganged-up in a rare moment of solidarity, effectively...
  • Blog Post: Reaping what you sow

    The other night I was inspired and motivated in equal measure as I attended the launch of the Natural History Museum's new exhibition, " Extinction - Not the end of the world ". It was an amazing scene in the Central Hall with the dinosaur skeleton lit red and the lights in the vast...
  • Blog Post: Do you say 'fall' or 'autumn'?

    Autumn has fallen. Not with the gentle floating of a golden-brown leaf settling gently on the ground, but the subtlety of a lead pipe delivered by a cold-blooded thug. With a resounding thwump, leaves have carpeted the ground overnight, falling only slightly faster than the temperature. Not that I'm...
  • Blog Post: Thomas and the trackside habitation

    It was a beautiful morning in the city of Sondon but the Fat Controller was not happy. "My really useful engine is in the wrong place and its all the fault of those nasty conservationists." He harumphed, stamped his foot and clenched his fists. The previous day, Thomas, a cheeky, fussy little...
  • Blog Post: Londoners unite and demand a healthier countryside for your money

    If you're going out with mates this evening and everyone's having a great time, stop it dead by saying the following out loud: "Today marks the fifth anniversary of laws preventing people from paving over front gardens without planning permission". Life and soul of the party you...

  • Media: Re-introduction of Wolves in Europe

    I am posting this in hope of a general response from wildlife supporters concerning the reintroduction of wolves into selected parts of europe, e.g. Scotland. I personally am all for the idea of reintroducing wolves yet a majority of people are against the idea as wolves are deemed as a 'threat'...
