Photo of Chris Griffin

Chris has been passionate about birds and bird watching from the age of six, but has since expanded his interests and knowledge to encompass many other aspects of the natural world from butterflies to reptiles and much in between. Although only in his early 30's, Chris has more than 20 years' practical experience of volunteering and working within the conservation sector, including working for the RSPB and as a Field Ornithologist for a private environmental consultancy. He is an avid photographer and is also training to be a bird ringer – and is rather more colourful in real life than shown here!
