I have been watching, surveying and banding birds for over thirty years, fledging on Copeland Bird Observatory near Belfast, but now migrated to north Auckland where I am an active volunteer for the Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi (SoTM). I have been Chairperson of SoTM and am currently a member of their biodiversity committee. My interests are wide-ranging from seabirds to passerines. I represent the interests of the Supporters on the Hihi Recovery Group and, as a keen bander, have assisted with translocations. We are committed to continuing our role as a significant source of birds for hihi translocations.
