I write regularly for publications, including The Guardian, The New Statesman, The Spectator and Birdwatch magazine.


Since 1987 I have contributed to the Guardian Country Diary - an article every other Tuesday. For my Guardian profile and latest articles click here.


You can find my reviews for the New Statesman, including a recent piece on Dan Gretton's astonishing monument to truth-telling called I, You, We, Them and Frans de Waal's superb Mama's Last Hug. Click here. I also review regularly for The Spectator here. 


A recent article was on the megapodes of the Solomon Islands in BBC Wildlife and you can see a little film i assembled on these incredible birds here. This spring I also visited the studio of Sarah Gillespie to talk about her extroardinary artistic practice. Here's my introduction to her latest London show.
