Educated at Manchester Grammar School and Durham University, he graduated with Honours in French and English, later gaining a Diploma in Education and pursuing a career in teaching.

Founder of several bird clubs for both adults and youngsters, he is currently founder chairman of the North Northumberland Bird Club.

|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.
