Barrie has a lifelong interest in nature and remains grateful for having fond childhood memories of Skylarks, Yellow Wagtails, Lapwings, Great Crested Newts and Water Voles, species with significant declines during his lifetime.  His passion for nature inevitably led him into conservation and a successful career with the RSPB.  The latter half of his career was on the international stage where he developed conservation projects and advised and trained conservationists from five continents on how to develop education and communication programmes.  Several of his written outputs have been translated into various languages.  Some of his training workshops were in China as part of the Spoon-billed Sandpiper programme.  Barrie has studied wildlife in over sixty countries across the world and loves sharing his passion for nature with others.  Astronomy is another interest from his childhood and he occasionally provides informal stargazing sessions on his tours.  He’s now returned to his native Lancashire and lives next to the Lune Estuary on the edge of Morecambe Bay.  A little known fact is that he’s a qualified football coach!
