Cheshire Wildlife Trusts’ next fundraising speaker event – ‘An evening with Bill Oddie’ at Chester Racecourse on 5 March 2015?
For many, Bill Oddie OBE will need no introduction. The face of the pioneering early days of live wildlife television during the 1990s, Bill remains a firm favourite with audiences of all ages through his many years on the BBCSpringwatch and Autumnwatch sofas, numerous books, magazine columns and hundreds of other TV appearances. For another generation, Bill will forever be one of the ground-breaking and zany comedy trio, The Goodies.
An often outspoken conservationist, Bill is a national vice president of The Wildlife Trusts and many other nature charities. Bill’s formative years as a birdwatcher were spent in his native West Midlands, just down the M6, before going on to university and the famous Cambridge Footlights. After many years as a comedy writer and performer, countless spots on natural history programmes followed; including several of his own TV series with acclaimed natural history producer and author Stephen Moss.
Bill brought out his acclaimed autobiography 'One flew into the cuckoo's egg' in 2009, has his own range of wildlife and birdcare products and currently writes a regular column in BBC Wildlife magazine.
