Mike has travelled very widely in search of wildlife over the last 30 years, visiting six continents, spending extended periods exploring much of Europe, the Middle East, the USA and Northern India. In addition to his role as Client Manager for Wild Images and Birdquest, Mike has also gained experience leading tours for Birdquest to widely scattered destinations around the world.
