I'm a professional ornithologist and (hopefully, improving!) general naturalist, based in Cambridgeshire, UK. Birds are definitely the group I know best, but I've gradually been educating myself when it comes to other (local / more common) species – particularly butterflies, day-flying moths, dragon/damselflies, bees, hoverflies, etc. – partly by getting involved in local citizen-science surveys. I currently do most of my wildlife recording in the Local Nature Reserves and other green spaces of Cambridge, but have also done fieldwork in slightly more exotic locations (my PhD thesis was on the ecology and conservation of the White-winged Nightjar Eleothreptus candicans, with fieldwork in eastern Paraguay), and hope to 'mobilise' some of these older records in due course.
