Many thanks to Countryfile magazine for picking On the Marshes as one of their great summer reads. Read the review here
This month I am interviewed by Countryside Voice, the magazine for CPRE. Sorry about the fuzzy screenshot, we all know I am hopeless with technology.
Better late than never. Here are a few photos of Ros Coward and I at Wealden Literary Festival, where we were delighted to get to do our double act in the Garden Tent.
Another interesting review of my book, On the Marshes. I love the fact that it’s inspiring people to want to visit the area and interesting to see which parts of the book they choose to talk about. This reviewer enjoys the scene in which I get trapped on an island in October with a rising tide and have to be rescued by a lifeboat. I was a little preoccupied to take a picture at that moment so here is a shot of the river from Darnet Island on a quieter day.
After a 14 hour stint of bird surveying on Sheppey it was nice to come home this evening and read this great review of my book by the fabulous Caught by the River. It is interesting how my walk and encounters are seen by someone else and I am delighted the reviewer wants to trace my footsteps.
Many thanks to Shaun Spiers, Chief Executive of CPRE for this great review of my book.

I will be doing a Q&A and a reading at Waterstones this evening. Hopefully in the company of my former boss, Alan Johnson, South East regional conservation director for the RSPB, whom I look forward to bantering with.
