Through the years, my focus of attention has always been drawn to the incredible diversity of birds and I never cease to be amazed by their variety and interesting habits.
As a result of this, I have placed huge emphasis on trying to photograph and write about birds in the hope that others will become as enthralled about them as I am and in so doing, help support their conservation and protect the environments in which they live. I regularly submit photographic and written material promoting birds and their conservation to a wide range of media across the globe.
