One of the UK’s best-known wildlife presenters is to visit the north-east.
With the BBC’s Autumn Watch returning to our screens later this month, presenter Iolo Williams will appear at the Community Theatre in Aboyne as part of the Aboyne and Deeside Festival.
Mr Williams will describe, with his customary wit and humour, his adventures as a species officer for the RSPB, from meeting a farmer who held an egg collector over a 40-foot cliff to the oyster catcher who held up the Duke of Rothesay’s train.
The family-friendly talk will also touch on the threats facing our wildlife today.
Entitled ‘Life Before the Lens’, the talk takes place at 2.30pm on Saturday, November 2.
Tickets are £15 for adults and £5 for children under 16, and can be booked online at www.aboyneanddeesidefestival.org.uk or by calling Ticket Source on 03336 663366.
