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!
