"Mike has been an obsessive naturalist since childhood, equally at home either on his hands and knees identifying British orchids or surveying the Amazon for hummingbirds. Having graduated with a degree in Botany from Nottingham University and then a Master’s in Ecology from the University of Bangor, Mike’s obsession with the tropics began when studying moths in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest. Returning back to the UK to reacquaint himself with his first passion, British wildlife, Mike then made the sideways move from conservation to natural history television.After a period spent presenting wildlife programmes for Channel 5 between 2000 and 2002, Mike then worked at the BBC as a Reporter for Britain Goes Wild and Springwatch and as a Presenter for Hands on Nature on BBC2, and a number of series on BBC Radio 4. He is today probably best known for his regular appearances as the ‘wild man’ on BBC1’s The One Show. Having contributed over 400 films during the show’s ten year run, Mike also regularly reports on the BBC1’s regional affairs programme Inside Out."
