The Ultimate In Birding Tours

Nik Borrow

Nik Borrow lives in Norfolk, England. As well as being a Birdquest Senior Leader, Nik was also a major illustrator of our much-missed paper brochures. His formal Fine Art training was undertaken at Wimbledon School of Art, where subsequently he taught art for some years. Always a keen birdwatcher, his two main interests finally merged when he turned professional bird artist.

An enthusiastic traveller, Nik’s birding and leading travels have taken him to many places in Europe and southwest Asia, Siberia, Mongolia, China, Tibet, Southeast Asia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and North and South America.

Nik’s major interest is the birds of sub-Saharan Africa.He has travelled very extensively throughout Africa over more than three decades and has accumulated a wealth of experience during the huge amount of time he has spent in the field.

He is co-author and sole illustrator of the definitive and critically acclaimed Birds of Western Africa (2001), which has now been published in both English and French versions and also Birds of Ghana (2010) and Birds of Senegal and The Gambia (2011). He also prepared the distribution maps for Birds of the Horn of Africa (2009).
