Westcountry Wildlife is a husband and wife team based at Wellington in Somerset. We have been filming wildlife for two years and have visited Devon, Wiltshire and Dorset, with Cornwall being the only county we have yet to visit within the umbrella of the 'West Country'.
We have so far produced 15 half hour episodes featuring an array of wonderful wildlife. Our relaxing yet informative approach has proven immensely popular, as can be seen by our guest book page.
Many find our programmes to be just the tonic they need at the end of a busy day and we are sure you will feel the same. So, why not browse through our video clips and see what we mean. There are also plenty of photographs of wildlife we have met on our travels.
Westcountry Wildlife Volume 1is available on amazon.co.uk.
Westcountry Wildlife is a unique journey through the area, taking in the beauty of both the landscape and the wildlife within it. It consists of 3 top quality episodes. Contrary to the fast paced, presenter dominated programmes that are characteristic of our day, these episodes are a wind down and relax, whilst still being entertaining and informative. But be warned - one episode is never enough.
