FACT:

Twitter was created 8 years ago today, which means no Arsenal fan has ever tweeted about winning a trophy.

Introduction
Use e-mail contact only please.

Growing up in Lancashire, he moved to New Zealand and then Australia in the mid-70s before moving to France and UK in 2012. 

His interest in birds and indeed anything that swims, flies, crawls or otherwise moves, started early and has never waned. Alan has travelled all over the world to look for birds but it is Australia and the surrounding region, including New Caledonia and New Zealand, where he has a special expertise. Alan was instrumental in getting the famous Sydney / Wollongong deep water pelagic trips off the ground in 1978; trips that subsequently recorded many bird and cetacean firsts for Australian waters. After over 850 pelagic trips, including selling and guiding the first commercial trip to the sub-Antarctic Islands of New Zealand and Australia, his seabird identification is well-honed! 

Alan is a past President of Birding NSW and has been heavily involved with a number of other ornithological organizations in Australia such as Birds Australia, Seabird Group and Wader Study Group amongst others. He is currently the Australian Regional Representative for Neotropical Bird Club.

His photographs have appeared in such august publications as Readers Digest Book of Australian Birds, National Photographic Index of Australian Wildlife and numerous photographic field guides, including Harrison's now famed Seabird guide.

He co-authored the re-write of The Complete Guide to Finding the Birds of Australia. Richard Thomas, Sarah Thomas, David Andrew and Alan McBride:
Alan has many other published writings: viz. in 50 Places To Go Birding Before You Die.

Other interests include France and all things French, photography, writing, Scuba diving, hiking, most music and anything to do with natural history.
