!!! Impostor alert !!!    If you receive an email from "" pretending to be me, DO NOT reply to it!

I have been informed that this person is using my name and text from the biography page of this website in a job advert on Craigslist in the Miami area. Please DO NOT reply to this advert, or any other advert that appears to be from me, as no such job offer exists.
The imposter seems to be trying to get people to answer their job advert so that they can obtain information about what office equipment the applicant has at their address. It is very important that you do not give such information to these people as you may be leaving yourself open to burglary. Please report any suspicious adverts that you see to the appropriate authorities to ensure that nobody falls victim to these criminals.
If you receive any emails pretending to be from me from any source other than my official email address please report them as spam and delete them immediately as these emails are fraudulent and DO NOT originate from me.
I send emails ONLY from


News & Updates



Sorry for the recent lack of updates. I'm getting very behind in my image editing during my current trip to Australia. The weather has been so good that I have been out from dawn to dusk without a break for the last month and today is the first day I have seen rain since arriving in Australia (I'm now just south of Brisbane at Lamington National Park). This rain-break has allowed me to at least make a start in catching up with the computer work and I've uploaded another update to the blog. This is dedicated to the 13 species of honeyeaters I saw during my stay in the Port Douglas hinterlands and can be found here. I'll try and upload the second part (all non-honeyeater wildlife) in the next couple of days if I have internet access at the campsite.



The first of my reports from my current 90 day tour of Australia are now online. These cover the first 3 days of my trip and include Cairns city centre area and Michaelmas Cay.



Updated the Orchid galleries to include additional species and new photos from this year.



Added several updates to the Diary/Blog with the final batch of photos from my trip to Switzerland, plus a few trips I've made since my return and a new batch of Tsetse fly photos.



Added several updates to the Diary/Blog with more photos from my trip to Switzerland. It is now complete up to and including 30th June.



Updated the Diary/Blog with photos from the first week of my 2 month trip to Switzerland.



I have now been in Switzerland for almost a month now and due to not having electricity for the first 3 weeks of the trip am getting very behind in my photo editing! I'm slowly catching up, but it's a difficult task when I'm out every day taking even more pictures!

The first of the diary updates from the trip are now online and cover the few days I spent in Kent before driving down to Switzerland. The updates are: 19th May (Rye Harbour); 19th May (Wye NNR) and 20th May (Dungeness).
