We are saddened to announce the loss of DKG, our gifted in-house photographer; David Keith Galliers died peacefully at home after a short illness.

We will miss his dry sense of humour, his kindness and his hard-working enthusiasm for the park, which he recorded for us in all its seasons and moods. His obsession with early morning light has left us some truly unforgettable images.

Our heartfelt condolences go to his family.

  1. Oh no, I shall miss our early morning chats. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. My heart felt condolences to his family.

  2. He was a brilliant photographer, generous with his talent and time as well as his pictures. Our website will miss him dreadfully, his beautiful photographs were central to its success, but I will miss his odd and wicked sense of humour most of all.

  3. I didn’t know him but always enjoyed his strikingly beautiful photographs. A sad loss.

  4. So very sad enjoyed his company on our walks. He taught me so much about the Country Park and its Wildlife 😟

  5. His photographs were great. It takes a lot of patience to photograph wildlife as well as expertise. Sorry he’s gone.

    1. He used to walk in the park very early in the morning and catch the wildlife as it was waking up but before the people arrived. We have some brilliant shots of birds that I will try to share with everybody in the next couple of weeks.

  6. A very sad loss. Condolences to his family. He showed us parts of the park that we would otherwise miss. Gave us inspiration to open our eyes more as we walked around.

  7. I’m really sorry to hear about this. I only met David once, when he did have a glint of dry humour in his eye. I’m glad to share some of the beauty he saw out of those eyes in his photographs. I’m sure this must be a big loss to his family and the volunteers at the country park – I hope you are all doing as well as you can.
