Well done David, we have been on a few walks now and watched you on tv and listened to you on the radio, all have been interesting and informative."


Ian Lester (Foraging Workshops)

"I went foraging, and it's a glowing endorsement of our charismatic and engaging guide David Winnard of Discover the Wild that I had a fabulous time despite the weather."


Liz (Things to do in Manchester) - (Foraging Workshop)



"I have to say, despite the rain, the foraging was really good- David Winnard from Discover the Wild was excellent, and really knew his stuff."


Susie - (Foraging Workshops)



"A trip to the Outer Hebrides with Discover the Wild was much more than I expected, with Andy's photographic and industry knowledge, and Daves immense Identification and Natural History skills, the whole group went from strength the strength and everyone came away with improved knowledge and impressive portfolios of work. Within the first ten minutes we were put at ease and for the rest of the week felt we were just on a trip with friends this personal approach is whats missing on many other tours, Thanks again Discover the Wild!"


Jezebel Peters (Outer Hebrides Tour)

"The workshop was a great day out, the venue chosen was brilliant for birdwatching, plenty of variety in habitat so many different species could be seen, plus the guides were excellent, their knowledgeable was second to none & also really nice approachable people. Thank you for a great days birdwatching"


Bill Glover (Bird Song Workshop)

"I came to the Birding Workshop run by Ian and David with a few months of taking birding seriously and with an open mind. I was particularly interested in understanding birdsong better and some of the issues of identification when birds are less easy to see and to note their key features. In this and all other respects the workshop met  my expectations. Ian proved a patient and knowledgeable guide, with a down to earth approach and I felt reassured about some of my own limited successes and mistakes. David  was able to provide a lot of information about the trees, plants and insects around us, something not always touched on during a day like this. I came away with a lot of ideas and approaches to this wonderful pastime of ours.

Well worth it and highly recommended for 8 hours of informed knowledge delivered in a relaxed and involving way."


Martin Ansell (Bird Song Workshop)

"It was so so ace to wander through the woods with you on Sunday!! Thank you so much for just being ace. I want your brain!"


Emma Patchick (Foraging Workshops)

"David Winnard; forager extraordinaire and self confessed mushroom addict. For me this was his only downfall! That said his story about how his gran used to pay him to find mushrooms with the price going up to 5p for rare varieties made up for it, how sweet?!"


Keeley (Foraging Workshop)



"Upon arriving at said mystery foraging location, we were introduced to Mr. David Winnard from Discover the Wild, a foraging expert who had bravely agreed to lead the rabble. An absolute brick of a chap, it was simply fascinating to hear him talk about a subject that was very close to his heart. Literally an expert in his field."


G.M. Norton (Foraging Workshop)



"Thank you David Winnard and Discover the Wild for another great day looking for mushrooms. We learnt so much more - and the chanterelles and chicken of the woods were delicious :) "
