Mark Dennis is an English born birder who moved to Canada in 2003. He is now a Canadian citizen, mostly for the Maple Syrup discount but also so that he can wear a tuque legally. After leaving school, a succession of lousy jobs saw him eventually wash up as a warden at Colwick Country Park in Nottingham and he subsequently enjoyed 15 fun-filled years there. Mark now lives in Nova Scotia, birding daily and adjusting to hearing the sea lapping against the not-so-distant shore. Writing has always been a passion and wildlife writing even more so. Over time, more birding books will reveal even more about the largely unknown and often spicy world of birding.
