Dave Farrow

Dave Farrow lives in Norwich, England with his Japanese partner Kumiko. He cut his birding teeth amongst the woodlands and gravel pits of Hertfordshire, but much of his adult life has been spent overseas.

Dave has a special love of Asia, where his field experience now amounts to many years in total, and also North Africa. A skilled and experienced tour leader, he has escorted birding and adventure travel groups to numerous countries, and is at home almost anywhere. Dave has travelled very extensively indeed in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, China (including Tibet), Taiwan, Japan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Burma (Myanmar), Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and large parts of Indonesia.

His knowledge of Arabic in particular has stood him in good stead on many tours in North Africa and the Middle East, including when exploring the Yemen and Socotra during Ornithological Society of the Middle East (OSME) surveys.
