Arnoud van den Berg
Arnoud is a principal Limosa guide living in the Netherlands, where he is chief editor and founder of Dutch Birding magazine, and one of the three core members of the ground-breaking Sound Approach team.
Although perhaps best known for his skills as a top-notch bird photographer, Arnoud is an outstanding field birder and a prolific author. He has also been recording bird sounds since the days when this involved lugging a tape recorder the size of a microwave oven around the world with him.
An integral part of the Limosa team since 1991 - when he master-minded our very first Dutch Wild Goose Chase - Arnoud's relaxed and cheery disposition fit perfectly the Limosa style. Backing up his many talents in the field and his considerable linguistic skills, he somehow manages to carry with him a cavernous rucksack, crammed with state-of-the-art birding gadgetry, the mysterious contents of which help to ensure a great time is had by all.
His many trips for us over the years have taken him across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas - including nine tours to Florida, seventeen to France and almost thirty to both the Netherlands and Morocco. He is a leading authority on the avifauna of both countries and his knowledge of those country's birds and where to find them is second to none.
