The first review, by BBC Wildlife Magazine columnist Amy-Jane Beer, has already been published. 

  • "An ideal addition to any family booskhelf, though it should also spend plenty of time over the years in your backpack or glove compartment".
  • "Lowen maintains a lovely tone, necessarily practical but also occasionally poetic - a friendly, encouraging and knowledgable companion."
  • "This book will fuel your imagination, frame your desires and simplify logistics for the summer ahead."

Finally, there are my regular columns on the month's wildlife for Bird Watching and The Countryman magazines.

I've had quite a bit of other writing published recently. An article for the Wildlife Trust campaign #30DaysWild appeared in the magazine Scottish Wildlife.


I've written a short piece about the book for the website of the British Guild of Travel Writers. And I hear rumours that the book will be featured in both national broadsheet and regional newspapers. Watch this space!

I have had two features published in World Birdwatch, about marine conservation and China. I have also written various news stories for the magazine and/or for the BirdLife International website.



18 March 2016   New book.... and more!

A week ago, I received the advance copy of my new book, A Summer of British Wildlife: 100 great days out watching wildlife. Published by Bradt Travel Guides, it is now in all good bookshops (real and virtual). Advance orders are already in the hands of summer-focused wildlife-watchers across Britain, with trips being planned as I write. Remarkably, it appears to be temporarily sold out already on Amazon!
