In August 2016, I wrote a feature on Japan, arguing that it provided the world's finest winter birding.

My photography also features regularly in the magazine - over and beyond my monthly column. Twice I have been selected to 'exhibit' in the magazine's photographic supplement. Here is one such appearance in spring 2018, when the brief was to offer a tip to aspiring 'toggers. 

In March 2015, I had another cover feature, about lekking, as part of a pullout called The Mating Game.

In Britain's best-selling bird magazine, I have a monthly column (see towards bottom of this page) and write regular features.


In January 2015, I had the cover article, a 16-page pull-out on a year of birding wonders: avian spectacles across Britain.

Since late 2013, I have written a monthly column for the magazine, entitled 'Beyond Birdwatching'. This examines non-avian wildlife of interest to the birdwatcher., encouraging birders to spread their wildlife wings and get into other faunal or floral groups. It has evolved over time, with regular makeovers. Here are a few examples.
