Fieldsports Britain – BBC’s Fergus Beeley talks falconry

We meet Fergus Beeley. Fergus is the next David Attenborough – and, unusually for a media luvvie, he’s a keen falconer. He has made every kind of wildlife film, from the incredible goshawk sequences in the BBC’s Life of Birds series to impassioned pleas for the future of the grey partridge. You may have seen his film on the BBC last year A Highland Haven, where Fergus followed the fortunes of the black-throated divers and whitetailed sea eagles of Loch Maree. He shows us round the Hawk Conservancy Trust in Hampshire. And he describes the making of Return of the Grey Partridge, a film he made for the British Falconers Club.
