About the Author

Subsequently he was organiser of Operation Seafarer (the first national seabird census of 1969–1970) and later director of the then West Wales Wildlife Trust. He was author of the first Where to Watch Birds in Wales published in 1987, followed by two subsequent editions, and was awarded the MBE in 2003 for services to nature conservation in Wales and in 2014 a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Welsh Ornithological Society.

He was the author of Birds in Wales 1992–2000, co-author of Birding in Pembrokeshire and the previous edition of Where to Watch Birds in Wales.

Praise For…


“Despite all of the information, the size of the book is suitable to pop into your rucksack when out and about, and I highly recommend that any birdwatchers living in or visiting Wales do just that. I also think that those with a more general interest in nature would find this title of interest, as many of the sites included offer some of the finest nature experiences Wales has to offer. Da iawn – very good!” —British Birds

“Now in its fifth edition, Where to Watch Birds in Wales remains an invaluable and most trusted site guide […] This is an essential guide for any birdwatchers living in or visiting this land of hills, valleys, moors and mountains.” —Countryside
