About the Author

Ray Tipper, ARPS, is a life-long birdwatcher who left his native Britain in 1973 and spent most of the next 22 years engaged in Hong Kong. Here, he became a trustee of WWF and was intimately involved with its renowned Mai Po Marshes Nature Reserve. It was in Hong Kong that he turned to bird photography which quickly became his major interest. He is an associate of the Royal Photographic Society and his photographs are regularly published in journals and books all over the world. Bird photography remains his passion yet he still retains his love of birdwatching and has led close to 80 tours for the British bird tour company, Avian Adventures, in Europe, the Americas, Africa including Madagascar and Asia. He now spends much of his time in the Algarve, Portugal where his expertise has been acknowledged with his appointment to the Portuguese Rarities Committee.
