About this deal

During a time when many people faced the prospect of little work or human contact, Nick followed the pinkfeet and brent geese that filled the Norfolk skies and landscape as they flew in from Iceland and Siberia. As an adult he migrated away to Bolivia to work in conservation for a decade until on a trip back he saw a brent and took it as a sign to continue the good work at home. Unfortunately my only encounter with geese was a clan of Brent's flying over at dusk, but it romanticised my time away. Participants in Nick's events have included Patrick Barkham, Simon Barnes, Kate Bradbury, Tim Dee, Roy Dennis, Mike Dilger, Jake Fiennes, Nick Gates, Matt Gaw, Dave Goulson, Melissa Harrison, Nick Hayes, Sam Lee, David Lindo, Benedict Macdonald, Erica McAlister, Dara McAnulty, Megan McCubbin, Professor Ian Newton, Chris Packham, Lev Parikian, Stephen Rutt, Anita Sethi and Brigit Strawbridge.

His journal also has much to say about what mother nature, whose every changing detail he records, can do for a person’s mental wellbeing.I'm thrilled to be sharing my native Norfolk (and other sites around the UK) with Wildlife Worldwide clients again. Nick Acheson worked in South America and touring the world in conservationist and nature related work.

Nick has written for BBC Wildlife, British Birds, British Wildlife, The Guardian, The Big Issue, BTO News, The Countryman and numerous other publications. Sebastián Martínez Daniell’s Two Sherpas ‘becomes a viewpoint from which we can see the whole world’. Greeted by tuts and sarcastic eye-rolls, he set the bar a little higher and off we went to gawp at feathered friends through binoculars.Nick Acheson is one such individual, and the significance of the pinks, brents and white-fronts that winter in his north Norfolk landscape is evident from his engaging and beautifully delivered text.
