For “twitchers” in the UK, Stephen Moss is a familiar household name and a beloved birding celebrity. He was the original producer of the BAFTA award-winning TV series Springwatch, worked with the TV shows Big Cat Diary, Birds Brittania, and Birding with Bill Oddie, and has authored no less than forty books on birds and British wildlife. Stephen writes a monthly Birdwatch column for the Guardian, is president of the Somerset Wildlife Trust, is an honorary professor at Nottingham University Business School, and currently leads courses and lectures at Bath Spa University in MA Travel & Nature Writing. As a close friend of both Bill Thompson, III, and Wendy Clark, Stephen and his family have hosted them many times at their lovely home in Somerset, UK. This podcast was recorded in August 2019 as Wendy and Stephen chatted on the Moss family patio in a butterfly garden. Learn more about Stephen’s expansive career, his passion for birds, conservation, and education, and take a stroll down memory lane as Stephen and Wendy share fond memories of the late Bill Thompson, III.
