The one with guest journalist and author Stuart ‘The Birdman’ Winter where we talk about the after-effects of Hurricane Katia, Nick’s self-found Pallid Harrier, a ‘good’ gamekeeper near Tom, highlight the awful illegal trapping situation on Cyprus, and Stuart promotes his book ‘The Birdman Abroad‘. We also have a pre-recorded interview with David Stanton, Exec-Director of non-profit NGO The Foundation for the Protection of the Arabian Leopard in Yemen.
NB: All opinions and views expressed by an individual panel member and/or guest during a Conference Calls podcast are those of the individual speaker alone, and are not to be taken as being held by or representative of any other individual, organisation, or sponsor unless specifically identified as such during the recording of that podcast.
And your Panel today consists of…
- Charlie Moores, a freelance writer and podcaster (and now sadly intermittent birder) who either lives in a warm little cottage in north Wiltshire with his family or in a cold ‘podding shed’ editing an endless series of podcasts that more and more people appear to now be listening to.
- John Hague, a birding psychiatric nurse from Barnsley who now lives in Leicester where he’s a prominent member of the Leicester and Rutland Ornithological Society. John blogs extensively at The Drunkbirder where he rants “about the world and the absurdities of life“.
- Tom McKinney, the Derbyshire-based birder and award-winning musician who founded The House of Bedlam and gigs as part of Tango 5, and author of the much-missed Skills Bills blog. Tom now blogs weekly at Birdingblogs.com/TomMcKinney.
- Nick Moran, an expat Yorkshireman living in Norfolk, where he runs BirdTrack at the BTO. Nick spent most of the noughties birding and occasionally teaching Biology in China and the UAE; he is an OSME Council member and secretary and voting member on the Emirates Bird Records Committee which keeps him in touch with Middle East birding.

The Foundation for the Protection of the Arabian Leopard in Yemen
The Foundation for the Protection of the Arabian Leopard in Yemen is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring a “sustainably managed wild population of wild Arabian leopards living in harmony with local communities in Yemen.”
We partner with other organizations and individuals who have a stake in helping us to achieve our mission. Our Program Implementation Plan, though developed independently, is closely aligned with the Strategy for the Conservation of the Leopard in the Arabian Peninsula which was published by the Environment and Protected Areas Authority (Sharjah) in January 2010.
