About me

Gender MALE
Location Penryn, Cornwall, United Kingdom
Introduction I began birding as a child when I grew up in Leicester. I was a member of the Leicester Young Birdwatchers Club (along with a few other well known Birders). I moved to Cornwall in 1985. My birding has taken me all over the uk where in the 1990's I was a keen Twitcher. In those pre-digital days I was a keen rarity photographer and spent many an hour racing to Island Photo's on the Scillies to get the days shots developed! In the early 90's I was a regular photographic contributer to the UK Birding Press. These days my uk twitching has somewhat reduced although I cannot resist the odd foray for a mega! World birding has become more of a focus. I have travelled to many countries around the world on birding trips and it was in 2005 I eventually diched my old 35mm Canon T90's and FD lenses to switch to video. Since this time I have very much focused on producing video footage for all of my trips. I not only video Birds but have a special interest in Dragonflies where I am nearing completion of my "Ultimate UK Dragonflies" DVD featuring all the resident species,rarities and potential colonists.
Favorite Movies My DVD's of course!
