I caught a crab!
Giving it the David Attenboroughs

I’m a writer and photographer based in Hebden Bridge in the West Yorkshire Pennines.

My interests include the natural world, the British countryside, science in general, and Charles Darwin in particular. I combined these interests in my first book, On the Moor: Science, History and Nature on a Country Walk. It’s about digging deeper into the things I encounter on my local patch. It’s good: you should definitely check it out—by which, obviously, I mean buy it.

I’m currently working on a book about looking at the world through Darwin’s eyes.

On the Moor

Carter cleverly weaves in science at every opportunity, whether it’s inspired by direct observations of birds and animals and plants […] or spinning off from a trig point onto the geometric methods of surveying through history all the way up to GPS. […] All in all, this is probably best described as a great ramble on the moor with an expert guide. […] It’s a wuthering wonder.
Brian Clegg, popular science author and communicator, Popular Science Books
