About Mike

With two degrees, one in ecology and one in botany, and a life-long passion for natural history, Mike has risen quickly in the world of presenting and is a regular face on BBC1’s ‘The One Show’ and is also the co-presenter on BBC2’s ‘Nature’s Top 40’. He has been the presenter on CBeebies, ‘Autumnwatch’, ‘Springwatch’ and ‘Nature’s Calendar’ and is one of BBC1’s ‘Inside Out’ presenting team. 

In 2018 Mike presented the spectacular ‘Philippines: Island Treasures’ on BBC2, which saw him explore the rich culture and rare wildlife of the stunning Philippines.

With his encyclopaedic knowledge and profound experience of both British and tropical flora and fauna, Mike was first seen on our television screens on ‘Britain’s Wild Invaders’ on Five in 2000. He quickly moved onto other projects both on television and radio becoming the wildlife expert on ‘The Terry and Gaby Show’ and a contributor on ‘British Isles: A Living History’ with Alan Titchmarsh and the ‘Nature of Britain’. 

Mike is the author and co-author of numerous books – to name just a few: ‘Nature’s Top 40: Britain’s Best Wildlife’ and ‘Nature’s Calendar’ to complement both TV series, and ‘Nature’s Babies’. His most recent book ‘Wildlife in your Garden' was released in April 2016. Mike also regularly writes magazine articles for numerous publications.

Being a keen traveller, Mike leads tours at different locations worldwide for wildlife holiday companies. He picks up languages easily and is fluent in Spanish, basic Swahili and Vietnamese. He also attends many British bird and wildlife fairs as he is committed to bringing the beauty of the natural world to a broader audience.
