Richard has specialised in the Pyrenees region and the wilder parts of Spain for more than 20 years. During this time he has walked many thousands of kilometres through the Spanish mountains leading a variety of trips. A fund of information on the natural history, mountains and people of Spain, Richard loves showing visitors this special part of the world. His main interests are natural history - birds, botany and butterflies - hiking, cross-country skiing, and nature photography. When not leading tours Richard spends time with his family, in the garden, playing music in a local band and cooking.
