Autumn moths in Canberra

Blk Mtn April w-1.jpg

Autumn is my favourite season, clean fresh skies, low light and the first cool nights. It might be cool but there are still moths out there at night, all sorts of shapes and sizes of moths. As I found, yet again on Black Mountain in the middle of Canberra. Here is another short list of some of the moths we trapped by light,last week.

Wild Writing - and protest.

Felling has started, unannounced, in the wood the village’s children (including my own) have grown up playing in. It transpires that its timber has been bought by a forestry company, 60 miles away.There is a history of unrecorded dormice and adders in this wood. And a billion memories. I feel hunted, haunted. And pretty ineffectual. I put on my best Lois Lane (Breakfast at Tiffany’s trenchcoat, lipstick and wellies) and clump down the road to ...

The Norfolk broads

Last week I was cruising the Norfolk broads, giving me ample opportunity to photograph some wildlife. Whilst cruising it made me think about the abundance of species that was there, the majority of animals I saw were Black headed gulls, Great crested grebe, Mute swans and Greylag geese. There were high numbers of each of these seen at various locations around the broads which means my camera roll is full of them but it also ...

Month 3

As the year trundles on I am still trying to get out to do something every day with, in or to the natural world, and to my surprise I am still managing.

The main thing to notice this month has been the change in daylight has driven the turn in natural cycles as spring has moved on at a pace, even though the weather has been more winter like than the rest of the winter ...

Wild Writing in Wessex - Blackthorn Winter

Blackthorn Winter, Hawfinches and the English Civil War: I have been haunting churchyards, beech hangars, cherry groves and the yew-lined avenues of Tudor Mansions. "The hawfinches call sweetly, their song barely that: nothing more than the sound of an icicle plinking into a crystal glass in a snow cave, it is so pure and simple. New Writing:
