2017 brings a number of really exciting new developments and some old favourites. I am just writing the blurb and sorting out edits with Jonathan Cape on my latest book Our Place, a personal journey into the history of British environmentalism.
A major development is my first visit to teach at Moniack Mhor in August/September with author Sara Maitland. More details on the course can be found here.
Then in October I have another first; this time a week-long in-depth exploration of the wildlife of Extremadura in south-west Spain in conjunction with the Kelseys of Casa Rural el Recuerdo. Both courses are now fully booked but it you're interested in either for future years then please contact me here.
Blackwater Blog is an online scrapbook of words and pictures about anything in nature from springtails to sparrowhawks.
It can be read if you click here, but every few weeks I post a Photo of the Month, a new image of something striking or seasonal. And the present season is the Arachnocene: to find out why click here.
