With so many passionate wildlife watchers at Bird Fair, this was a great opportunity for us to gather some stories about what kick starts a deep love and fascination with nature. There were also some high profile wildlife lovers for the team to talk to.
Froglife’s Patron Mike Dilger was interviewed by young volunteer Amy about what got him started on the road to the One Show naturalist. Wildlife Ambassadors and other volunteers also chatted to writer Mark Avery and photographer Mark Cawardine about formative moments in their lives. We talked to lots of people who had shared some precious wildlife memories, including a botanist who remembers going out identifying wildflowers with a plant-loving mum and an enthusiastic gardener who created a newt pond from a bath tub as a child.
