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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Bittern on the prowl.
Another picture of the rare and wonderful Bittern, photographed at Blashford Lakes, near Ringwood, Hants. It's searching for a tasty snack no doubt.

At home in the reeds
This photo was taken at Blashford Lakes, nr. Ringwood in Hampshire. I had been looking out for the bittern for some time before it emerged from the reeds.

"Here I am".
The location for this photo opportunity was Blashford Lakes, near Ringwood, Hants. I had visited these lakes several times previously without any luck, then one morning," hey presto" there it was, a wonderful and rare Bittern, my luck had changed and this picture is the result. I was so pleased...

Are you talking to me?
Another example of wildlife at Keyhaven, Hants. On this occasion A Black-headed Gull seems to be waiting for some response from the Knot on the waters edge.

Are you impressed?
A day out at Titchfield Haven nature reserve hants. provided this photo opportunity to capture what I can only describe as a courtship display by these two cormorants. Interestingly the photo was taken on 24th august last year.

Birch Shield Bug
Every year I spot these Shield Bugs in my garden on the outskirts of Bristol. They have such character and can look almost prehistoric. The best part is they remain really still when you photograph them! The lime green of its armour was in perfect contrast to the golden marigold it was sat on.

Poll: How do you get children involved with nature?
It'd be really interesting to see what everybody does with the children in their care, whether you're a parent, teacher, home educator, club leader, relative (I could go on!). Please post if you've got a great memory or would like to share something that your children really enjoy doing...

Are you planning something nature friendly for your school grounds this year?
I thought i'd kick this thread off by seeing if anybody is planning on doing something for nature with their school grounds this year? Whether it's a new pond, a bird feeding table or a themed area devoted to wildlife, it'd be great to hear about it.
