I write regularly for The Guardian, The New Statesman and the The Spectator. Since 1987 I have contributed to the Guardian Country Diary – an article every other Tuesday (it is now around 860 pieces). For my Guardian profile and latest articles click here.
Among recent reviews for The Guardian are my thoughts on Richard Fortey’s superb memoir A Curious Boy. I am very much looking forward to interviewing him as part of the Buxton International Festival. You can find tickets here. I also wrote a recent review of Scott Weindsaul’s comperehensive update of bird migration, which can be read here.
In the autumn I wrote an extended essay in the New Statesman on what lockdown taught us about the importance of nature. It considers how environmental policy is currently failing nature and looks at what we could do differently to improve the British environment and the nation’s access to it. Here.
