Tomorrow's Conservationists - tbc
A collaborative podcast series hosted by myself and editor Lucy Morris from ConkerNature, interviewing 15 of tomorrow's conservationists. The podcast will be recorded in Bournemouth in late November/early December, and published soon after on all mainstream podcast sites. Will keep you posted!
Rewilding Talk w/ConkerNature - Oct Half Term
A collaborative online event between myself and ConkerNature, looking into rewilding, ornithology, and urban conservation. Details are still being ironed out, but it'll include a 30min piece by myself, an interview w/ a special guest, and much more. Email for details, exact date/time still tbc. Watch this space!
Rewilding: One House Sparrow At A Time - mid Oct, tbc.
After the success of my lecture at Global Birdfair, and previous talks, I'll be giving a short 40minute talk (plus questions) virtually, at some point in mid-October. Date tbc, likely around 7pm, and free of charge. Watch this space for details, and email me if interested at email@example.com.
Coveney Guided Walk - 2nd October (2022)
(All being well with trains) I'll be travelling up to Cambridgeshire for a weekend to assist with Coveney Church's Big Green Week. I'll be leading a guided wildlife walk on the 2nd for those interested - hand lenses etc can be rented. Email for details.
RHS Wisley Gardens - 28th September
I'll be attending Wisley Gardens on the 28th with the wonderful Tree Council (The Tree Council | Working together for the love of trees) to promote our work, and to advocate for more hedgerows in the UK, to help our beloved House Sparrows.
Havant Eco Fair - 24th September
A fantastic event in Celebration of The Big Green Week. Nice to see faces old and new. Due to a shortage of birdboxes and bug hotels to sell, it mainly became a "showing off" stand!
The Global Birdfair 15th - 17th July
Like nothing I'd ever been to before... Thousands of wildlife conservationists from around the Globe, all in one place. While I absolutely loved singing about Sparrows, selling my birdboxes and so much more, honestly it was just a privilege to be in the company of so many amazing people.
National Gardener's Scheme 26th June 2022
Not only did I meet hundreds of new people (and some familiar faces from the Wildlife Trust!), and not only did we raise £100s for the gardens, but we had a LIVE House Sparrow fledging from some of my birdboxes throughout the event - 4 chicks in total!
St Alben's Nature Roadshow - 21st May
The 1st of hopefully many Nature Roadshow Events. A fantastic day of stalls, music, and events. I even managed to have most of my voice by the end of it, alongside three assistants!
Coveney Church Birdbox + Bug Hotel Day - November 20th
As part of Coveny Church's project to rewild the Church grounds, an event was organized where locals sponsor a birdbox/bug hotel to be built and installed, with their name on it. You get three guesses of who made the birdboxes + bug hotels...
Pymoor, Cambridgeshire - 24th-27th August
A string of little sales to raise money for a project at my local precinct. Only 3 boxes left at the end, sold out of bug hotels and have pre-orders for next time I'm in the area!
Success! No hurricane this time which was nice; several Sparrow boxes and bug hotels sold (the silver birch ones seeming to be very popular!).
Lovedean Village Hall Sale (Havant) 4th July 2021
Had a fantastic, soggy time selling some of my finest Sparrow boxes and Bee hotels (all handmade of course!). Everything paper-based admittedly did disintegrate quite quickly in the hurricane, but who reads instructions etc anyway.
