We are offer a variety of talks and lectures for groups and societies.  Visit the Gallery to a sample of images from our talks.

All talks can be delivered via Zoom if required - I have a paid for zoom account, so there is no need to limit a talk to 45 minutes.

Paul and Julia are now part of a team of guest speakers on Fred Olsen cruises. This talk covers some of our breeding and passage seabirds, cetaceans and other sea-mammals seen on their trips.

SEABIRDS AND CETACEANS

 

GAMBIAN EXPERIENCE


Paul and Julia visited Gambia in January 2017 and 2018, and again in December 2022.  Share their experience as they venture up river and back to the Atlantic coast.

 

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

This talk explores the world of invertebrates and plants as seen through the macro lens and is updated with new images each year.


MY YEAR

This talk is a calendar of the previous year's exploits, with highlights from each month.   This talk is also an ideal introduction to the other talks available.


CALIFORNIAN SUNSHINE

Flying  into San Francisco in June 2016, Paul and Julia soon left the streets behind, heading over the Golden Gate bridge for a few days before heading south to Monterey for cetaceans, then on to Yosemite and back to San Francisco.  Bears, whales and dolphins complemented the birds seen and photographed.


THE ALGARVE - RELAXING BIRDING​

The Algarve is a popular destination for holiday makers and also golfers, but the south coast of Portugal also has much to offer the birder who wants a relaxing holiday with easily accessible birding.


TARIFA - GATEWAY TO AFRICA

Tarifa in Andalucia is famous for the numbers of birds that pass through on their way to North Africa each Autumn and then again in Spring on their northwards migration. We have made trips to Tarifa in 2017, 2018 and 2019.


BEAR ESSENTIALS​

In May 2019, Paul visited Finland, close to the border with Russia, where he spent five days photographing Brown Bears and other wildlife in Taiga.  He has since returned four times.


Texas - Lone Star Birding

Follow Paul and Julia as they travel down the Atlantic Coast from Houston, to the Mexican border, then inland along the Rio Grande.
