Brett Westwood is an enthusiastic field naturalist, never happier than when he’s holding a sweep net and/or a pair of binoculars, ready for a day out on his local north Worcestershire patch. He’s also a great fan of urban wildlife and has a special interest in how wildlife in our towns and cities is changing. Between 1998 and 2014 he was a radio producer with the BBC Natural History Unit. He has presented several series on BBC Radio 4 including The Living World, Nature, World on the Move, Saving Species and Natural Histories. Brett has written nearly 400 scripts for Radio 4’s Tweet of the Day, a series about birdsong which began in May 2013. Since 2014 he has been consultant to Springwatch and has also presented many of the Red Button live shows, giving viewers a sneak preview of the action from the live cameras. With Stephen Moss, Brett has written Tweet of the Day and Natural Histories books to accompany the radio series and in 2017 he and Stephen published Wonderland, an account of British wildlife day by day. He was a co-editor of the Nature of Wyre, a guide to the wildlife of the Wyre Forest on the Shropshire/Worcestershire borders.

Brett’s column, natural reflections, appears in every issue of British Wildlife.
