Ever since he can remember, David has been passionate about birds and wildlife. This has lead on to a varied 20-year career in conservation (working largely for the RSPB) and guiding bird- and wildlife tours. He is currently a member of the British Birds Rarities Committee.
His work has taken him to all four corners of the UK - from studying Wood Larks in Dorset to guiding wildlife tours in Shetland. More recently he was employed setting up a new RSPB reserve near Snape (Suffolk). David has also been involved in some fascinating projects around the world, ranging from studying Griffon Vultures in Israel to restoring fragile ecosystems on the Seychelles.
He has travelled far and wide in pursuit of birds, including trips to France, Chile and South Africa. Originally from ‘up north’, David now lives close by the Suffolk coast with his wife and two young daughters and we are delighted to welcome him to the Limosa team. He brings with him enthusiasm, humour and relative youth (he's 40), as well as excellent leadership and bird finding skills.
