Global Birding is the brainchild of Tim Appleton MBE, co-founder of the first and biggest Birdfair which he ran for 31 years. Prior to creating and managing Rutland Water Nature Reserve, he worked for Sir Peter Scott at the world famous Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. He reintroduced Ospreys as a breeding bird to England in 1996. Tim has been awarded an MBE as well as the Cadbury medal, both for services to conservation. With a life long career in conservation and management, his ethos is to bring people together, inspire them and help global conservation. Tim is available for consultancy for projects where his expertise may be of help eg. Eco tourism promotion for Tourist Boards, Wetlands sites development, nature reserve creation and management as well as Birdfairs.
