Alongside my practical activities I have acquired a vast collection of photographs of flora and fauna and included a small sample of the total in this website.

Centre for Fortean Zoology Expeditions

Sumatra, Indonesia

In 2011 I went to the rain forests of west Sumatra on one of Adam Davies' expeditions to search for the Orang Pendek.

Here are descriptions of the amazing geography, bio-diversity of life within the jungle; including plants and fungi, invertebrates and other Sumatran wildlife.

Meghalaya, India

In 2010 I went to the state of Meghalaya in North-East India to search for another cryptid (the Mande Burong).

Here you can see photographs and video of this fascinating part of the world.

My Blogs

The Natural Stuff Diary is a weekly record of natural history and is regularly updated.
