Among the many books he has written are Bird Behavior, Nature's Night Life, Ponds and Nature by the Roadside. As well as writing pieces for the RSPB magazine, Birds, Robert Burton has contributed a wildlife column to Popular Gardening and fascinating articles to other magazines including the Royal Horticultural Society's The Garden. He took over the popular Nature Note column in the Daily Telegraph his father's from his father Dr Maurice Burton. Coming from a wildlife-orientated family, Robert Burton has grown up with the concept of the garden as a sanctuary for birds and other animals. After traveling widely for his past studies, working at home has given him plenty of opportunities to observe the visitors to his garden.
