13 October 2020Sowthistle feature

I am pleased and proud to have my latest article published in the October 2020 issue of British Wildlife magazine on a rare Scottish montane plant called Alpine Blue-sowthistle (Cicerbita alpina), which I also see regularly and talk about on cruises to Norway.  I take the opportunity in the article to compare land use in the mountain areas of Scotland and Norway, and draw conclusions from this about the damaging impact of our vast deer-stalking estates in Scotland.


22 May 2020More for 2021

Regent Seven Seas Cruises has provisonally booked me for three more cruises to interesting waters in the second half of 2021, which are listed on my Cruise Bookings page. In June, 2021, I should be returning to Canada and Greenland on a cruise ending in Iceland. In November 2021, I will be exploring the Indian Ocean and the coast of South Africa once more, followed in November/December by a cruise revisiting my favourite ports in South Africa and Namibia. However, partly because of the impact of the Cornonavirus, Regent is reviewing all its speaker bookings for 2021, so I cannot yet guarantee that I will be on these cruises.

I have also kept time free for other possible cruise options, so keep an eye on these pages later in the year for more 2021 and hopefully 2022 cruise news.
