The Ultimate In Birding Tours

Pete Morris

Pete Morris lives in Lancashire, England with his wife Nina and sons Jack and Josh. When not acting as a Birdquest tour leader, Pete works in the Birdquest office and on the Birdquest tour programme.

He has been birdwatching for as long as he can remember, growing up on the North Kent Marshes and at Dungeness. After graduating in Environmental Science at the University of East Anglia in 1987 he spent a year working at English Nature before taking off overseas. He lived for a time in Australia, returning to Britain to work as an environmental consultant.

Over the past decades, he has travelled very extensively in every continent and to numerous islands (particularly in the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean, SE Asia and Australasia), indeed there is hardly anywhere in the world that Pete is not familiar with! Pete has an enviable reputation as a doggedly persistent tour leader who tracks down the specialities of everywhere he guides.

Pete has published many articles and photographs from his travels and also given illustrated lectures. Pete is the senior author of the well-received Birds of Madagascar: a photographic guide (1998).
