I am a birder of more years field experience than I care to recall and am retired from running a wildlife conservation trust and three zoos in the United Kingdom. Although living in the UK my heart resides in southern Africa, having grown up in Zambia and Malawi. Fortunately I have been able to make regular visits in support of a conservation project in Zimbabwe and I always take the opportunity to get out in the field to look for wildlife. I do the same when visiting other countries for work, conference or vacation purposes. My interests are not just in birds so I take photos of pretty much anything that will stand still long enough for me to do so. I'm glad to be able to use iNaturalist to put those observations to scientific and conservation use.
