My family history

My family history

Vic, Rutland Water Nature Reserve
Whilst researching his family history, Vic found that many of his ancestors were connected to wild places as gamekeepers, shepherds, millers, gardeners or agricultural labourers. His lifelong love of nature, as a hill walker, caver, birdwatcher and moth-trapper felt almost hereditary.
