A quality after dinner speaker has been booked. BBC presenter and naturist Chris Packham. Chris was born in Southampton in 1961 and as soon as he was crawling around suburbia, ladybirds were being desiccated in matchboxes and tadpoles tortured in jam jars. Husbandry skills improved and the menagerie expanded to large collections of reptiles (inside) and birds of prey, foxes, badgers, squirrels etc (generally outside). A precocious young scientist, swat and nerd in training he studied kestrels, shrews and badgers in his teens and as an undergraduate days in the Zoology department of Southampton University. More recently he is better known as a broadcaster and a presenter of BBC’s BAAFTA Award winning Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch series Extraordinarily creative and prolific, Chris Packham has led a remarkable life.
