Tom Bowser's headshot

Tom is a nature writer, journalist and wildlife guide. From his family farm near Dunblane he runs the award-winning Argaty Red Kite project. His first book, A Sky Full of Kites, A Rewilding Story (Birlinn Ltd 2021) tells the story of the project and of the history of red kites in Scotland. It also details his attempts to rewild his farm, making it a home for red squirrels, pine martens, otters and many more incredible animals.

As a freelance journalist he has written for The Scotsman, The Herald, The Times and for the rewilding charity Scotland: The Big Picture.

Tom loves writing about and talking about wildlife. He is happy to travel throughout Scotland, delivering talks to all age groups and group sizes. He is an experienced public speaker and has been a panellist at several national wildlife events including The Big Picture Conference and Scotland: The World’s First Rewilding Nation.
