I first became aware of birds while attending an all-boys boarding school; it was a place that was abusive on many levels.

I found a safe haven in birds, the first bird I ever became aware of was the Green Woodpecker.

This is when I discovered my love of birds

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to combine your interests with your career?

Serving with the British Army allowed me to combine my career with my innate passion for birds.

The stories in my book are based on my experiences; with birds, people and the places I have been to. Both in and out of the British Army.

More Birds Than Bullets is not just as the title suggests, there is more to it than that, it can be seen as a metaphor for life’s experiences. I hope you find the book amusing, unbelievable and maybe even shocking.

Below are some of the stories you can read in my book.
In Japan we bagged 17 Okinawan Woodpeckers within 24 hours
Out of the so called 20-200 remaining birds on the island we saw fifteen individual birds and heard two, one was calling and the other drumming...
Needle in the Haystack
As we ventured into the wood-lands on the Czechoslovakian side of the Tatra mountains, we soon realised the wood was extremely boggy, forcing us to walk along fallen trees... just before the batteries died, we saw IT, our first...
You could say we found the preverbal needle in the haystack.
Stop the Battle Group
“In all my years in the army I have never known anyone to stop a battle group from moving, not until THAT Twitcher came along…”
We upset the Hunters
I ordered my men to open fire, pigeons, rabbits, pheasants and foxes disappeared in all directions. The Germans Hunters, were still shaking their fists, shouting and swearing at us, as we set off down the track to our vehicles.
All in all, I think it was a good day.
