The hair’s gone crazy but the scenery’s atmospheric at Dan’s Dock on the Isle of Sheppey.
On the Marshes Walk,
August 10th 2019,
10.00am – 12.00pm,
Elmley Nature Reserve
As part of the Sheppey Shorelines Festival I am taking a morning stroll around this lesser known part of the Elmley Nature Reserve. Join me as I relive my daddy-long-leg horror on Elmley Hill and tell you a little about the history and wildlife of this lesser known corner of Sheppey.
The walk is free but the Elmley Conservation Trust request a £5 parking charge.
Booking Essential – email email@example.com to book a place.
Join me for a stroll at dusk across the RSPB reserve at Northward Hill in Kent where I reminisce in the cherry orchard and hope to catch a glimpse of the spectacular rook roost.
New Year’s resolutions have started early and I have created my first Nature Notes vlog. Follow me on a tour of St Mary’s Church, Lower Higham. It was here I began and ended my book On the Marshes. I plan to do many more of these tours in the next few months so keep your eyes peeled.
Mark Avery and I swapped books at the recent Kent Ornithological Society conference where we were both speaking and has kindly put a review by Ian Carter on his blog. Mark’s book, Inglorious, is next on my reading list and no doubt I will return the favour.

Join me and writer Peggy Riley for a glass of prosecco and a chat at Harbour Books in Whitstable this Thursday.

June sees the launch of On the Marshes in paperback and to celebrate I am returning to the beautiful church of St Mary’s in Lower Higham where I slept on the last night of my walk across the marshes. The event is on the 9th June at 6.00pm Tickets for this event are £6 but there is no need to book you can just turn up on the night. There will be a licensed bar and snacks available to buy on the night.
On the 21st June I travel to Kirkdale Books, the oldest independent bookshop in South East London, to talk about On the Marshes and sign books. More details to follow from the bookshop website.
