Mike Crewe

Born and raised in Oxford, Mike first joined Limosa in 1997 having spent 15 years working in horticulture - his love and knowledge of which subject still often shines through.

In 2009, after 13 years working for us - both as a guide and at the Limosa office in Norfolk – 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 the Cape May Bird Observatory. Tour leading has always been his first love however, and it appears he'd been missing his old job... so he returned to the Limosa fold early in 2016 to resume his tour leading duties!!

Aside from birds, 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 may greet you when phoning the Limosa office.
