 Your Guide!

My passion is birdwatching, whether it be taking other birders to my favorite haunts or out on my own, taking photographs of the wonderful avifauna of Western Australia!  Please have a look at my Photo Gallery to get an idea of some of the local species. Interesting recent sightings can be found under Birding Reports.

A keen birder from childhood, I moved to Western Australia in 1998 and since then I've been actively involved in the National Bird Atlas Project as a Regional Organiser in the South West .  Previously I spent time in Adelaide where I was a member of the South Australian Ornithological Association and the Australasian Wader Studies Group.
