I became fascinated by birds around the age of seven. Early training in bird-banding at several British bird observatories fed this addiction, which was not significantly diminished by studying Zoology at Cambridge, nor by graduate work at Aberdeen on tropical seabirds in the Indian Ocean. I went on to a post-doctoral fellowship on West Indian birds with David Lack at the Edward Grey Institute of Ornithology in Oxford, which became home base, between work periods in the Seychelles Islands, Kenya (University of Nairobi), the Cayman Islands, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Shortly before completing a popular book on bird conservation (Save the Birds, – published in nine languages in 14 countries), I emigrated with my family to Canada. I worked for the Canadian Wildlife Service in Ottawa (first as a researcher, later as Coordinator of the Acid Rain Program) and in Saskatoon (as a research manager, and Adjunct Professor in Biology at the University of Saskatchewan) before moving to UNB in 1994.
