I’m Martin and I work in the Communications team at BirdLife International in Cambridge. I am Managing Editor of BirdLife’s magazine World Birdwatch and am also ultimately responsible for editorial on this blog. So if there’s a mistake, my fault.
I began life as a research scientist studying the sex lives of birds and the ecology of ageing before getting into science communication and conservation. I’m an avid naturalist, high on enthusiasm, low on skill.
I have an inordinate fondness for woodcreepers and a love of 1980s alternative music and Asian film, but am nowhere near as interesting as that makes me seem.
I’ve yet to see a Sociable Lapwing.
