Photographer Mike Potts features in the gallery this November & December

Posted on 08 Aug 2019

Mike's work will be on display in the gallery throughout November and December.

I have spent the last 40 years filming wildlife, mainly for the BBC's Natural History Unit. I worked on many of their big series such as Life of Birds, Life of Mammals and Planet Earth. I was a bird specialist and my last film was a 50 minute special on Hummingbirds shot mainly in Brazil and Ecuador. I have a particular love of wildfowl which started over 50 years ago when I worked for the then Wildfowl Trust. Now retired from film making I concentrate on stills photography, mainly of wildfowl and seabirds from across the world, which I exhibitat WWT centres and at the British Bird Fair at Rutland Water.
