I have been writing a column for my local newspaper, The Chew Valley Gazette. My column is called Birding Tales and it is great to know that lots of people who work for the BBC Natural History Unit and in the natural history field live in the Chew Valley, just south of Bristol, and read my column.
These are a couple of my recent columns:
My Column was about birding in the UK and seeing my 450th species in the UK and is on Page 44 http://bit.ly/LboNOi
