BBC Wildlife Magazine - - DAVID BELLAMY -

David Bel­lamy and David At­ten­bor­ough were the two peo­ple that in­spired my life-long love of na­ture. I was al­ways drawn more to Bel­lamy for his warm, hu­man ap­proach to the sub­ject and that in­fec­tious chuckle. A truly knowl­edge­able and pas­sion­ate man who will be missed dearly by me.

Bel­lamy in­spired my love of na­ture and an­i­mals. His en­thu­si­asm and his love of life was con­ta­gious. I met him on a school trip back in the 70s and he was ev­ery­thing I thought he would be.

I first met David when I was eight, on a school trip. He was film­ing for a series high­light­ing dif­fer­ent species found in rock­pools. Af­ter per­suad­ing us to be quiet, so he could fin­ish talk­ing, he came to speak to us. I was in awe. He was so or­di­nary and in­cred­i­bly knowl­edge­able.

As a stu­dent, I vis­ited Flan­ders Moss in cen­tral Scot­land. My lec­turer was look­ing for a unique plant that had been shown to him as a stu­dent by David Bel­lamy. When we found it, he pointed to the big dent in the bog where the fa­mous man had stood!
