RSPB Macclesfield Local Group
Tuesday 14th March 19:45
This will be the first visit to our group by Stephen, a lifelong naturalist who is one of the country's leading nature writers, broadcasters and wildlife television producers. He has written more than 30 books on birds and wildlife, has a monthly Birdwatch column for the Guardian and writes for many other publications. He is the original producer of the Bafta Award winning TV series Springwatch, as well as other TV credits including Big Cat Diary, Birds Britannica and Birding with Bill Oddie. In a career spanning almost three decades at the BBC, spent mainly at the world famous Natural History Unit in Bristol, he has had the good fortune to travel to all seven of the world's continents in search of wildlife. He has worked with David Attenborough, Bill Oddie, Alan Titchmarsh, Chris Packham, Kate Humble, Simon King, Charlie Dimmock and Michaela Strachan.
His talk will cover his work at the BBC in what he describes as 'probably the best job in the world'.
