Very proud to have one of my images appearing across a double page spread in the book to accompany the new BBC Series, Wild Isles. Presented by Sir David Attenborough, the series begins on Sunday March 10th, and documents the wonderful wildlife we have right here on our doorstep. The series contains some incredible footage, not least the Snettisham Spectacular in Norfolk, where hundreds of thousands of wading birds all congregate in the Autumn. As the tide rises the waders are forced off the mudflats and into the adjacent lagoon, and the BBC have utilised drones to get a unique overhead angle on the murmurations.
I’ve been lucky enough to see and photograph the Snettisham Spectacular a number of times. I was contacted by a BBC Picture Researcher back in December of last year about the possibility of using one of my images in the book, and I very readily accepted! It’s been an agonising wait, but the book, published by William Collins, is now available to buy. You can purchase a copy here.
For a little taster of what’s to come you can see the trailer for the series here –
