Broadcaster and naturalist Terry Nutkins has died at the age of 66, months after being diagnosed with leukaemia.

Mr Nutkins devoted his life to teaching the public about wildlife and was perhaps best known for co-presenting the popular BBC children's television series Animal Magic in the 1980s with Johnny Morris.
He was fondly remembered for regularly appearing on the programme with Gemini, the Californian sea lion he hand-reared from infancy.

That's very sad. Always liked Animal Magic . He was a great inspiration to young people in furthering their interest in nature and the environment.

R.I.P Terry.

He was a little after my time, but watched some of his programmes, a sad loss.
