Geoff Green is keen amateur birdwatcher. Since his mid-20's he has had a particular interest in birds, including spending many hours in inhospitable weather just hoping that special bird will turn up! Geoff has also pursued his interest studying all aspects of birds - their identification, behaviour, history and characteristics. Over the years he has recorded information on birds and particularly bird names. Retirement provided the opportunity to collate all this material into a book, having had experience of writing books from his career as a lecturer. He hopes by publishing he can share his interest and knowledge of birds with others. Geoff is a member of a range of wildlife and birding organisations and has worked as a volunteer with the RSPB. He is currently an active member of Devon Birds as a member of a committee.
