Television presenter Chris Packham is a wildlife expert, photographer and author with a passionate concern for conservation and the environment. He has travelled the world in pursuit of all things that slime, sting and scratch but remain close to his heart. In his latest book "Nature Handbook: Explore the wonders of the natural world", Chris emphasises that becoming a naturalist requires systematic observation of nature. To do this you should have the means of recording what you have seen, and for this purpose he recommends BirdVoice as one of the 'must-have' specialist equipment for birdwatching.
