Most U3A members will be familiar with Colin's spectacular and intimate wildlife photography and his rare ability to convey fascinating information about his subject in an entertaining and engaging way.

'The Hedgehog Predicament' is the result of two years of research and photography. It covers the natural history of hedgehogs, the catastrophic decline of the species and reasons for it, and what we can do as individuals to help hedgehogs. The presentation is illustrated with photographs of hedgehogs and other specifically-related subjects.

Dorset-based, Colin has been creating evocative photographs of landscape, wildlife and gardens for over 35 years. His work has been reproduced in over forty books, widely in magazines and newspapers, and in cards, calendars and advertising worldwide. 

His photographs are used regularly to promote the work of conservation bodies, and he has won many awards, including competition awards four times in the prestigious International Wildlife Photographer of the Year and five times in the International Garden Photographer of the Year. He leads regular fieldwork photography workshops and lectures on natural history and photographic subjects to a wide variety of groups and organisations throughout the UK.

Prepare for a full house!
