Stories
Most of my time is spent doing articles for magazines and newspapers. Often it's the editors who come up with the story ideas. Other times, it's me pestering them.
The writing is usually a braid of natural history, landscape, people, personal experience and issues.
In the case of Wild I also have a regular column - The Wild Life - that's been running for the past 15 years or so. That means I get to scribble about whatever is on my mind as the deadline arrives. Here are some of the articles from recent years:

from Immersion Therapy

"It takes just a few dozen strides for the forest to grab you. It reels you into a world of green on green, a world that is not so much a place as a play of sensations. Travelling the forest depths, all familiar points of reference - landmarks and horizons, shifts in wind direction, the angle of the sun, the drift of clouds and the register of distant sounds - are gone. You might get a faint change in light or odd wafts of moving air but none of this adds up to much. Instead it’s all foreground, new growth on old, a fantasia of leaf shapes, scaly bark, strange plants and trickling, gushing sounds."
