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.
