Tribute to Guy Huntingdon (1949 - 2023)

Guy Huntingdon

We were saddened to hear of the death of Guy Huntingdon, after a long illness. 

In the 1980s and 1990s he was an active volunteer with Wirral Wildlife, especially at Red Rocks nature reserve.

Guy was born in Upton in 1949 and was interested in photography from his teens. He specialised in natural history and countryside images. He became a member of the Royal Photographic society in 1984. His technical skills and affinity with countryside and wildlife gave lasting impact to his photographs.

He worked with local historian Ken Burnley to produce three illustrated books on Wirral: Images of Wirral (1991), Seasons of Wirral (1994) and Reflections of Wirral (2011). The books feature many images of Wirral's wildlife and wild places including our nature reserves. Ken was our volunteer reserves manager at Red Rocks in the 1980s. Guy was already a warden at Red Rocks before Ken was appointed Reserves Manager and they didn't know each other before then, but became firm friends.
