About me

Gender Male
Location I live in Kingham, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I am now semi retired but doing consultancy work in the alternative medicine sector. I have been birding for as long as I can remember mainly in the UK and Africa but with the passing years many other countries have been visited worldwide. I am the author of Stonechats - A Guide to the Genus Saxicola published in 2002. Currently I use a Canon 7D Mk 2 camera and EF 100-400 IS lens with 1.4 Convertor for photography. Morocco is currently my favourite near haul destination for birding and Colombia my favourite long haul destination but both may change!
Interests Birds and Birding, Africa. Travelling by train especially in foreigh locations. Music of all genres apart from Hawaiian. Going off the beaten track mentally and physically as often as possible
Favorite Movies The Third Man, Paris Texas, Men in Black, Troll Hunter, Casablanca, Breaking Bad, Local Hero
Favorite Music All English classical composers, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and other Russian classical composers and assorted popular music usually with a R&B slant
