Danum Valley, Borneo, 2011

I have been a keen observer of birds for as long as I can remember, being particularly interested in their behaviour and ecological relationships.

My work in nature tourism and publishing has taken me to eleven African countries and I have written and produced a variety of publications and articles on the continent’s birds and other wildlife. Among the books that I have written, compiled or illustrated are: A Guide to the Coast and Nature Reserves of the Transkei (1989); The Vultures of Africa (1992) with Peter Mundy, John Ledger & Steven Piper;  Wild About Johannesburg (1994);  Wildlife of the Cape Peninsula (2001); The Ecological Journal and WildWatch Annual (1999-2006) for CC Africa (now &Beyond);  Wildlife of South Africa (2009); 60 Birds of Mbombela (2011); An Introductory Guide to Wildlife of Sabah, North Borneo (2012); Wildlife of the Okavango (2016) and Garden Birds of South Africa (2017).

I have visited Costa Rica, Peru, Brazil, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia and India in pursuit of birds in wild places. I spent my childhood in Little Chalfont, England, and now live in the coastal town of Hermanus in South Africa.

      Hi Sandy . . . the poster is 60x84cm . . A1. I am not living in KZN – the best delivery option is postnet counter-to-counter. I can dispatch tomorrow or Friday (new stock on its way) so it would be at Postnet Umhlanga Rocks by Wednesday next week. Please let me have your email address so I can send you an invoice with banking details. Many thanks, Duncan

      Hi Sandy. Not sure if my earlier reply came through? WordPress behaves oddly sometimes! The poster is 60x84cm (A1). Best delivery option is postnet counter-to-counter. If I dispatch by Friday, it will reach umhlanga on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. Please let me have your email so I can send you an invoice with banking details. Many thanks, Duncan.
