"Having birded round the world, I found Brian to be an excellent birder and birding guide. He knows where the birds are, whether it be a remote location in the karoo, a retention pond, or in a neighbourhood. In a few very enjoyable days we saw about 80% of the 225 birds in the Cape Town area, including many of the endemic species, sure to please any "lister". He also has broad knowledge of the natural world to fill in the down times, making birding with Brian a well-rounded experience. Not only a good birder, he's a good companion as well."
