Wales: Land of the Wild

Filmed over a year, this series captures Wales's varied wildlife and stunning landscapes, from the rugged mountains of the north to the seabird colonies off the west coast.
 

During 2018 I filmed a couple of sequences for this series. Filmed over a year but still a fast turn around project I only had a few days to film each story. Look out for the following; sand lizards, lapwings, Wale's last rain forest, hermit crabs, tiger beetles, anemones and silver studded blue butterflies.

After Dark: In the land of the Wild

For the first time, the veil of darkness is lifted as cutting-edge technology reveals the secrets of Wales’s nocturnal wildlife. Filmed across the seasons, from the biting cold of winter to sweltering summer nights, a variety of innovative cameras capture wild action between sunrise and sunset. Military-grade long lens thermal cameras, which record heat rather than light, film 20,000 starlings racing to roost under Aberystwyth’s pier and bats hunting insects over Margam Lake. Super-sensitive cameras which film at night in colour reveal the nocturnal secrets of badgers, moths, hedgehogs, toads and owls. And infrared light illuminates 300 lesser horseshoe bats leaving their castle roost. This is Wales like you’ve never seen it before.

During 2020's first lock down I managed to film a couple of small macro sequences for 'After Dark'.
