A school teacher of English and History by profession and a birder by inclination, Ken has been birding for nearly thirty years and has lead occasional birding tours for the last fifteen years or so. His pursuit of birds has taken him to every continent save Antarctica. He has led or co-led birding tours to Malaysia, Nepal, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Canada, Spain and the UK and, of course, within Australia! Ken has lived and birded for some ten months in the UK back in 1992, and in BC, Canada for 12 months in 2012. He is currently convenor of the Sunshine Coast branch of Birdlife Australia.
