Although keen on all wildlife, Adrian is mainly passionate about birds – he started looking at birds at a very early age. Having grown up near the costal Victorian border in South Australia, he was fortunate to have seabirds at his doorstep even before moving to study migratory birds in the sunny Kimberley town of Broome. When not on board expedition vessels, Adrian often spends his time studying birds in Asia and the Pacific region. Through detailed field observations, he tracks individual birds from their wintering rounds in Australia north to their breeding areas in the Arctic and back, working on behalf of the Global Flyway Network. He has acted as a guide on expedition vessels all over the world, but keeps returning to his favorite areas, the Polar Regions.
As an avid photographer, he is rarely separated from his camera and is happy to provide information about the birds on your voyage and how to record memories of them and your expedition.
