Exciting Wildlife Programmes & Activities for all Ages & Interests
Brian Macdonald has always had a deep love for the natural world: learning bird identification as a teenager from a superb teacher, county recorder & bird ringer; an appreciation of botany through training at Kew Gardens; and developing the interest in both as a warden of nature reserves in Oxfordshire.
Living in Llanbedr since 1997, the rich landscape & wildlife of Meirionnydd has stimulated birding & botanising and developing interests & skills in wild food & fly-fishing.
With experience of teaching & leading groups, Brian enjoys communicating his love of the rich wildlife & landscape of Meirionnydd, teaching skills & passing on the knowledge required for their appreciation.
