Simon Boyes began watching birds in England at the age of 12, and has rarely put his binoculars down since. He has a degree in Classics from Oxford University (useful for understanding scientific names!) and a M.Sc. in Environmental Conservation from Edinburgh. For the last 33 years he has scratched a living leading wildlife tours (mostly bird-watching tours), to all 7 continents: almost 300 in all. He has worked on 8 Antarctica cruises, two to Spitsbergen and one each to the Amazon, Sea of Cortez and round the British Isles. Having turned his first hobby into work, Simon has found some new ones: wildlife gardening, cricket, snorkelling, baking bread and playing traditional Irish jigs and reels on mandolin. He has lived in the same cottage on the Welsh borders for 30 years, now with his wife, daughter (17) and son (13).
|Expedition Staff (whether or not advertised
in our brochures) are usually booked many months in advance
of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even at
very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change
shall not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held
liable or responsible in these circumstances.
