RSPB Conwy

I started as a volunteer at RSPB Conwy doing odd jobs and using my time there to take photographs.

After a while they asked me to lead groups that were visiting the reserve and we would go out looking not only at the different birds but smaller wildlife and insects.

Working with groups gave me back some of what I felt I’d lost leaving Africa and I liked sharing the pleasure of spotting things and seeing the groups interest and enthusiasm grow.

Since then I’ve been working on a collection of photographs together and maybe it will be my pictures of birds that brings my experience of Africa and Wales together.
