Bob Wright - The Axarquia Birder

About me

Location Lake Vinuela, Near Malaga, Spain
Introduction I retired at the end of 1998 having been a primary school headteacher for thirty years. After a couple of years undertaking some consultancy/training work with headteachers, I moved to the Axarquia area of the Costa del Sol in Spain. We now live on a mountain top, a little to the north of Velez Malaga and overlook Lake Vinuela to the north and the sea to the south, which gives us excellent panoramic views of the whole area including the mountains. I have been a birder for over fifty years and before leaving GB I was a qualified "Ringer" for the BTO, undertaking most of my studies in Staffordshire, Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire.
