Robert Griffin has been a birdwatcher for 40 years. He first became interested in birds while living in the Blue Mountains and while his initial interest was in ‘bush birds’, it now extends to all types of birds including waders and seabirds. He is an active member and supporter of organisations such as Birds Australia and Birding NSW and is involved in monitoring programs such as those for the Powerful Owl and for the Australian Wader Studies Group. He also leads birding tours in Sydney and in regional New South Wales.
