About me


My name is Steve, I have been an avid birder and twitcher for over 30 years, with all aspects of birdwatching and conservation covered. I have had many enjoyable days travelling home and abroad looking for new birds to add to my ever expanding bird list. I restarted my list in 2000 with totals at the moment at 405 world list and 335 in the UK. This is the main reason for starting and running our sister website called South Lincs Archive which has gone from being my little black book to a very popular website globally, with our Car Trips being one of its star attraction's in which we lead a group of up to 15 people to selected locations home and away, the link can be found HERE . I have been a former committee member for three different RSPB groups from leading walks, running car trips, main spotter on coach trips and cruises, pointing out birds to RSPB members at numerous reserves all over the UK to helping out at shows, I am also a bird monitor counting specific species that have declined over the years. I also monitor Marsh Tits and Tree Sparrows at numerous sites.  I have been volunteering for the RSPB for almost 20 years. I am also a fellow BTO member and have been for the last 20 years and spend a lot of my time taking surveys on bird population and bird conservation. A Wader Quest member which is everything wader related even built a hide on a MOD site for the 168 Pioneer Regiment as there Legacy.  

We also run a Nest Box Project in which we make, place and monitor mainly Tree Sparrow boxes in woods, farms and even a couple of golf courses all over the Lincolnshire area. We are very passionate about helping our Sparrow's and do all we can to help them out.
I'm a true believer in the birds' welfare above anything else.
