Bill Oddie My Wild Life

My observatory

Bill, Hampstead Heath, London
Bill has spent much of his life on Hampstead Heath. Although he feels like he's miles away from anywhere, a break in the trees offers one of the best views of London City - when it's clear he can almost see to the south coast. Although he's done a lot of birding here, the heath has inspired Bill's songs, scripts and articles, too.

Urban green spaces give everyone the chance to relax around nature.
