Actor David Oakes visits Hampshire bird of prey conservation charity

February 27, 2024

Vikings: Valhalla star David Oakes met Sage the Tawny Owl when he recently visited the Hawk Conservancy Trust near Andover in Hampshire.

Continuing his passion for birds and wildlife, the Wiltshire-born actor took a tour of the charity’s countryside site, a place he has fond memories of visiting as a child and visits with his family, while learning about its conservation work with birds of prey both in the UK and overseas.

David met some of the most threatened birds on the planet – vultures – during his visit and heard about the Trust’s work to conserve them.

David frequently discusses the natural world with guests on his Trees a Crowd podcast but this time his chat with the Hawk Conservancy Trust’s Tom Morath will feature on the charity’s own Nature’s a Hoot podcast from this Friday (1 March) – available at www.hawk-conservancy.org/podcast
