I’ve been pretty slack with updating this blog hey. I have no excuses except I’ve been busy with a new job, raising a kid, making music, and birding locally.
I have, however, started guiding birders and photographers on a semi-professional basis. Contact me for rates. Multiple people works out cheaper per person – I can comfortably carry 3 people in my car, 4 slightly less comfortably, but doable.
My area of guiding is typically southern Sydney to about Barren Grounds NR/Jervis Bay area, specialising in the Royal National Park and the Northern Illawarra, although I can go further afield if need be.
I am currently offering 3 packages – 2 hour spotlighting, half day (dawn to 1ish pm) and full day (sunrise to sunset). If you have target species let me know and I can tailor a trip. I have many years of experience birding in this area and on an average half day trip I would expect to see 60-80 species, a full day up to 100. On a spotlighting trip I can pretty much guarantee Boobook, and hearing Sooty Owl, but it’s quite variable what we’ll find. It’s a good way to see mammals though.
