Stephen's blog is the most interesting and informative blog to be found on this part of Spain for those who care about wildlife. He is privileged to have a huge diversity of wildlife on his doorstep where he and his family live near Cape Trafalgar on the Strait of Gibraltar with Morocco a short flight away for migratory birds. His photography is stunning, he's an expert on birds in flight in their natural habitat, in all conditions from the stormiest weather to the calm of sunrise or the midday heat of the summer. He and his wife Patty run Andalucian Guides, a Birding and Wildlife tour company and this blog is a fine record of wildlife encountered on the tours, from day tours in the local area to tours further afield, from Extremadura in central Spain, to Corsica, the Bavarian Alps and Austria. His fine photographs record the diversity of wildlife encountered on these tours from the smallest butterfly to the largest raptor. These tour records, his birding skills, local knowledge of the varied landscapes and his linguistic abilities are much appreciated by the tour groups he leads. Concern about conservation is a thread that runs through the blogs - Stephen is an active member of Los Amigos de la laguna de La Janda who hope to restore a large part of the land to its natural wetlands state.
