I moved to Kent in 2020 after living in Wiltshire for 24 years, and previously in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Middlesex. The primary aim was to live closer to our two daughters but also (importantly for my hobby!) to be close to the coast.

My wife and I are both retired and have been busy renovating the house (and garden) we moved to in Weddington. We are now in the process of converting some land we purchased next to our property to become a wild flower meadow with a “wet” area to attract wildlife and fauna. We also now look after our grandson 3 days a week which we very much enjoy.

I have been a lifelong birdwatcher and have been very active locally since retiring, concentrating my birding around East and South Kent. Historically, I have been a YOC leader and a RSPB group committee member where I was responsible for leading outings and away weekends. Now living in Kent, I have been keen to support Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory and as a result have taken over responsibility for organising the Thursday evening talks assisted by Mike Briggs.
