Online Talk (Extra to programme) - Rick Simpson: Confessions of a bird guide

Location: Although the physical meeting can no longer take place due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rick has kindly agreed to deliver his talk online. For further details (including on how to make your donation), please get in touch using the Contact Us section of this website.

A read through of Rick Simpson's CV and list of achievements will take you quite a while; firefighter, estate agent, HGV driver and photography technician are just a few of the jobs he's done in the past. Now he has an international reputation as co-founder and chairman of Wader Quest, an organization dedicated to promoting and supporting wader conservation and research across the globe.

Rick spent five years running Birding Services, Brazil during which he gained a great deal of experience, not only of birds but the weird and wonderful ways of his clients! He is now based in the UK running and raising funds for Wader Quest.
