Seal Island Visit

I was recently back down in St Ives, Cornwall, where, not long ago, I had had the pleasure of watching a school of dolphins hunting not far off shore.

Wild Writing in Wessex - Badgers

The sun is molten on the ridge, then the light leaves the wood and the birdsong quietens. Blackbirds chip and pink their anxiety to roost and pheasants cough nervously. There is a change in the atmosphere and the wood takes on a grainy, cinematic quality. Very close by, disturbed flints rattle quietly over chalk cobbles and the nettles wag: the badgers are out ...

The Wildlife Channel

Hi everyone!

I'm Emma!

I love blogging and creating short videos about wildlife so a few years ago I decided to start my own multimedia website.

Catalogue 34 is a slow-build catalogue of a year in our lives, taking note of what we’re doing to our fellow earthlings. Tempered and influenced by one human’s experiences, over one year of her life, of her small encounters with some of these earthlings: from goldfinches and long-tailed tits on her feeder, to an urban cat mistaken for a fox and a feather-strewn lawn in the aftermath of a hawk’s pigeon breakfast.
