schools I families I groups

To create a community that is inspired by, has empathy for and values the natural world.

To educate and enthuse all generations in the local community about wildlife, its importance and conservation.

Supporting school teachers in the delivery of the Science and Geography curricula through natural history activities at school and in nature.

As well as team: Wildlife, I offer a number of wildlife activities for families and individuals, from my bases in Glandford near Holt, Wymondham and East Harling.

I deliver activities for adult and children’s groups, such as Beavers, Guides, home-schoolers and holiday clubs as outreach and from three Norfolk bases.

A short introduction

My name is Allan Archer, and I run talk: Wildlife.

I provide natural history education and activities in Norfolk, but will go further afield. In addition, I help promote wildlife and its conservation through interviews on my YouTube channel.

I first launched talk: Wildlife as an online wildlife and conservation magazine in 2000 – before the ‘blogging’ explosion! It has been through a number of different manifestations since and in 2022, after many years of contemplation, I took talk: Wildlife to the next level, by launching it as a business.

I am very grateful to have bases at the following three sites.


The ‘Nest’ – a large wooden barn – sits in the 20-acre grounds of the outstanding Forest School for Life in Silfield, Wymondham. I run indoor and outdoor activities from here.

A purpose built bird hide over-looking the Cley Spy gardens with its many bird feeders. I use the hide, garden and surrounding countryside to deliver various wildlife activities.

An area of stunningly refurbished pingo ponds (kettle lakes) and woodland on the Kemp Farm. A great area, with a variety of wildlife habitats and species, I use for my outdoor activities.

Thank you!

I am very grateful to my key sponsor, Cley Spy and the following supporters. They make it possible for me to keep prices for the talk: Wildlife services as low as possible so I can achieve my vision and mission.
