I have kept birds and been fascinated by nature all my life
I have kept birds since I was a small boy, and have been working with them on over a 100 different documentaries for the past 25 years.
Working with our family of birds for filming
Most of our work is for nature documentaries, filming our birds doing natural behaviour for various sequences, we pride ourselves on keeping our birds in very healthy, fit condition, and spend lots of time with them, so they enjoy what they do and have a varied, interesting life.
My Typical Day:
Looking after our birds
Putting birds out on their day perches, cleaning out the aviaries and bird houses, preparing the food for them for the day, and then flying them one at a time, then putting them in for the night and more cleaning round.
My favourite CHRISTMAS LECTURE memory is:
Bran our Raven finding his stone
