A 10-year-old boy has created a wildlife video in Highgate Wood in the hopes of becoming the next Chris Packham

Finley Robertson, a pupil at Rhodes Avenue Primary School, has been shortlisted in the Cairngorms Young Presenter 2017 competition for his video about foxes.

If he wins, he would enjoy a five-day holiday in Scotland and the chance to present a video with TV star Iolo Williams.

The Muswell Hill-based naturalist said: “I love how nature is always there but you have to go and see it. It’s almost exclusive to you.”

He added: “It’s like a whole other world.”
