Naturalist and presenter on the BBC’s Springwatch and Autumnwatch programmes Simon King explains what to look for when trying to spot wildlife in the British countryside.

King is one of the world’s leading experts in field-craft, wildlife-watching and wildlife photography. He describes how you can get closer to the wildlife around us if you know what to look for. How can you find and observe otters in the wild; how can you recognise when a kingfisher is about to come round a bend in the river; and how can you uncover signs of deer, foxes and badgers in your own neighbourhood?

King has 40 years’ experience working in the field. He has worked as a natural history filmmaker for 30 years on programmes such as Planet Earth, Life and Blue Planet. He is known to millions as one of the presenters on the BBC’s popular wildlife programmes, Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Big Cat Diary.
