How do you recognise the subtle signs left by a wild creature, track animals and most importantly, get close enough to see them before they disappear? Simon King OBE of Wildlife Whisperer will be visiting The Rhedged Centre, Penrith, Cumbria, to reveal some of the secrets of fieldcraft.

The exclusive event, entitled An Audience with Simon King OBE, will be in aid of The Wildlife Trusts for which Simon has recently been appointed President. Guests are given the option to attend a talk at either 10.30am to 11.30am or 2.30pm to 3.30pm.

Other activities include Walk with The Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Digiscoping Workshop, The Wildlife Whisperer Experience and Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition (the only venue displaying this prestigious collection of the world’s most dramatic wildlife images outside of London). There is also a chance to win some fantastic prizes!

Wildlife Whisperer is an invaluable online resource for wildlife lovers offering a wealth of free information and videos, news and access to some of the most effective equipment to help you get the most of your contact with wild creatures and the natural world.

“Everyone can enjoy wildlife, whether they travel to see the Big Five in Africa, go diving off the British coast or simply watch wild birds in their back garden – and we hope the Wildlife Whisperer can help them enhance their experience,” said Simon. “We are delighted to have Zeiss sponsor us – the outstanding performance of their binoculars and scopes makes the wild world come alive.”
