Denzil

I am a full-time freelance writer based in Belgium, where I now have joint Belgian-British nationality. My day job is a technical copywriter, which involves writing content for websites, blog posts, white papers, presentations, video scripts etc., for companies in a range of industry sectors.

Discovering Belgium is my personal blog focusing, not surprisingly, on Belgium. It covers suggestions for days out, hikes, cycle rides, nature reserves, castles, museums, city trips and much more.

Encourage A Child is where I sell my eBook, "Encourage A Child To Watch Birds."

DenzilWalton.com is my professional technical copywriting site.

Fun Finding & Photographing Fungi

November is a great month for walking in the woods. One of the ways to make your walk extra special – particularly for children – is to find and photograph mushrooms and toadstools.

Het Zwin Nature Park, Knokke-Heist, Belgium

Het Zwin Nature Park

Het Zwin Nature Park outside Knokke-Heist on the Belgian coast has been completely revamped. It’s a wonderful place to visit to learn about birds, and see them in real life. In the visitor centre you can learn all about bird migration, and then on the nature trail you can see the birds from special observation hides. Highly recommended for kids!

Walking the Belgian Coast

Walking the Belgian coast

Blow away those cobwebs with a walk along the seashore. Start at Oostende and turn right. Walk a couple of hours along the beach until you reach the lovely seaside resort of De Haan where you can stop for lunch. Onwards then to Blankenberge. You can then catch the coastal tram back to Oostende.
