'The Wakes', once the home of the 18th century naturalist, Gilbert White, houses the Oates Memorial Museum and the Gilbert White Museum. Nicholson had a long association with 'The Wakes' and acted as an Honorary Consultant. He assisted with publicising the Bicentenary of the publication of White's The Natural History of Selborne in 1989. As a young ornithologist, Nicholson had been inspired by White's book and provided an introduction and notes for the 1929 edition.
