Simon King


Simon King is a widely renowned wildlife filmmaker whose passion for the natural world is evident through his highly engaging and visually spectacular programmes. With over 30 years experience as a wildlife cameraman and presenter, Simon has developed a sound reputation as an expert in his field and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards including EMMY, BAFTA and RTS.

Simon’s most recent area of focus has been Scotland’s dramatic Shetland Isles, and his newfound enthusiasm for the area has led him to relocate to the Isles for a year with his family. His move and exploration was documented in the programme ‘Simon King’s Shetland Diaries’ which was broadcasted at prime time on BBC2 in 2010.

Amidst the noise and fog of Brexit, the government quietly publish this report. For all the positive rhetoric we are failing our natural neighbours and habitats. Lots of talk - not enough action or meaningful legislation

A couple of design tweaks to the ‘Curve’ nester: side inspection port, two tone front panel and organic wave to roof leading edge. Already proven to be a big hit with blue and great tits in the UK.

Chuffed to announce, after years of development and field trials, the ‘Curve’ cavity nester is here! Unique entrance emulates natural tree fissure and attracts wide range of hole nesters
