Born and raised in Oxford, Mike originally joined Limosa in 1997 having spent the previous 15 years working in horticulture - his love and knowledge of which subject often shines through. In 2009, after 13 years working for Limosa - both at our office in Northrepps and as a Limosa guide - Mike emigrated to New Jersey with his American wife Megan (who works for our trans-Atlantic friends Field Guides), to take up a post at Cape May Bird Observatory. Tour leading has always been his first love however, and it appears he's been missing his old job - so he returns to the fold early in 2016, to resume his tour leading duties with Limosa!
Aside from birds and Megan of course, Mike claims his other real passion is for plants. Those who have travelled with him on tour will know that this isn’t strictly true, however, for one quickly comes to realise that he’s a highly accomplished all-round naturalist who takes great pleasure in sharing his discoveries with others.
When he’s not away from home guiding our groups across Europe, Asia, Africa or the Americas, Mike’s is also one of the voices that will greet you when phoning the Limosa office.
