Mark Cocker Desk

I write regularly for a range of publications, including The Guardian, The New Statesman and The Spectator and Birdwatch magazine.


Since 1987 I have contributed to the Guardian Country Diary - an article every other Tuesday on nature. For my Guardian profile and latest articles click here.


You can find my reviews for the New Statesman here, including my recent piece on Tim Flannery's superb Europe: A Natural History here.


I also review regularly for The Spectator here. Among my most recent is a piece on Jeremy Mynott's hugely authoritative Birds in the Ancient World. Also Mary Colwell's Curlew Moon her timely, urgent plea to save one of Britain's most charismatic birds.


Finally I enjoyed sticking my hand into shadowy holes at The Natural History Museum's exhibition In the Dark.
