Recent and upcoming projects

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic most of the projects previously announced are on hold or cancelled. This page will be updated as the situation changes.

However, I am pleased to announce that my latest book Framing Nature – conservation and culture is now published by Gritstone Publishing and available here.

18th July 2020 was the 300th anniversary of the birth of Gilbert White and my plans for a series of events for this were cancelled.  However, there was an online festival to mark the day itself, with a talk and Q&A session from me. This is still available to view. I also took part in a BBC Radio 4 Open Country programme devoted to Gilbert, which is also still available.

2020 was also the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. My planned project and broadcast retracing Beethoven’s walks in the countryside around Vienna, inspiration for his Pastoral Symphony, has unfortunately been cancelled.

There is another book due in March 2021, Leopard Moon Rising, I have started researching a new book, and am working on various collaborations with other artists who are inspired by nature. Click below for more details!
