Introduction Relocated, with my wife Jenny, to Vancouver Island from Lancaster, north west England in October 09. I have been birding since I was a lad and have enjoyed the experience of starting all over again in a new land. In the UK I was editor of the Lancaster & District Birdwatching Society annual report for a number of years and served on the society's committee for longer than I can recall! I was also the co-ordinator of the British Trust for Ornithology's Wetland Bird Survey for Morecambe Bay (south) and surveyed my own favourite stretch of the Lune estuary for 20 years. For 17 years I also wrote a monthly birdwatching column in Morecambe's weekly newspaper and wrote a general natural history column and articles for the Lancaster Guardian. Now back in the UK, this blog serves as an insight into my 3 years living there as a Brit Birder in BC!
Interests Birding, art & design, music.
