Richard Unwin loves all wildlife, trees, animals and especially birds. Greatly enjoys the companionship of dogs. Loves his dear black Labrador Henry and lively Bootsy. The delightful Cockapoo.

Richard also has a large collection of grandchildren. During lockdown he decided to use some of the time to write a few books to amuse the youngsters. He was eager to encourage them to take an interest in birds He weaved some popular varieties into a first story about Bootsy and her astonishing flying ability! This came about Richard watching the golden cockapoo race across the lawn one sunny afternoon when simultaneously a wood pigeon swept past Bootsy! The idea was conceived for the first book.

Richard is delighted to be associated with Fun Nature Books.
