Millions of people from across the UK will soon be tuning in to see SDC pupil Sydney on BBC’s Countryfile programme.
Since the age of eight, Sydney has had a passion for taxidermy and is already making quite a name for herself in what is very much a male dominated world.
When the story about her rather unusual hobby appeared in the Daily Post newspaper, here in North Wales, the 16-year-old suddenly found herself appearing in the likes of The Times and Telegraph newspapers and on the BBC News website.
“The phone just didn’t stop ringing for a couple of weeks,” admitted Sydney with a smile.
“Then I think on the back of all this Countryfile got into touch and the presenter Ellie Harrison came to the house to film me working on a piece specially for the programme, she was very good company.”
Ellie and the film crew spent an entire day filming and speaking to Sydney about her passion.
“I was having a few problems with the pheasant but I’m pleased to say I got there in the end.”
Tune in to watch Sydney on BBC1 November 24, at 5.15pm.
