WHY SWALLOW FUND? 

Every year I celebrate with a bottle of champagne the sight of the first swallow. Every swallow that makes it back to share our summer- against very many odds- is a miracle. They are a symbol for the plight of our other-than-human neighbours. The lucky ones who make it back indicate that some connective tissue required to transport the birds along their migration routes remains alive. Let’s ensure the task of being a swallow (and all those creatures they feed on and that feed on them) is less fraught with human-induced peril and abundant with multitudes of bugs.

I receive much from a generous relationship with ‘nature’- the pleasure and privilege of living this life of mine in this extraordinary animate world is ‘beyond words’. I took to making images for that reason. I began as a child and I haven’t stopped since. 

SWALLOW FUND is a way I can contribute to the healing of this remarkable planet home of ours. I am donating 50% of SWALLOW FUND sales to the charity REWILDING BRITAIN

To date we’ve raised around £900 with your help. Thank you for that. Swallows have been spotted! The champagne bottle is empty.
