I made this film for BBC2’s Springwatch in May 2017. It’s a very personal film about my grandfather who was an accomplished bird watcher, bird photographer and writer with a particular focus on British wading birds. He wrote a book called British Waders in their Haunts that inspired me to make this film.
I set up the shoot and filmed everything except for the shots of me. They were filmed by my father who came along to assist. It was a lovely experience and I’m very proud of the results. I hope you like it.
