A 16-day small group tour to view Grass Wrens in Outback Australia was our first encounter with Laurie's well-reputed ornithological and photographic skills. His obvious research into remote locations, his accurate ears and eyes, coupled with his effervescent enthusiasm and knowledge for birds helped us see and photograph these tricky and often elusive species. We also managed to see many "lifers", but in close proximity as result of Laurie's efforts and experience. As a host he was thoughtful, generous and companionable, always willing to go that extra distance for the comfort of his guests. Highly recommended and lots of fun. We have already booked our next trip with him.

Brilliant free to use guides outlining where to find birds around the Top End, I would 100% recommend for any keen birders visiting the area. Very accurate and useful with great detail, including precise map locations.

Laurie has generously made available detailed info regarding great birding sites in the Northern Territory Top End.

My wife and I recently used these to photograph a range of 'highly sought after' birds, including fantastic views of Great-billed Heron at Donkey Camp Weir near Katherine - a site we would never have found if it wasn't for Laurie.

Many thanks!

Laurie loves the birds and they reciprocate with stunning poses in remote locations. Laurie is professional, prompt, informative, and fun. A rare combination! From serious birder to enthusiasts who love new species, you will not be disappointed. Thanks for a once in a lifetime tour of the Top End! ❤️

I followed one of Laurie's free guides to find Mangrove Robin in Darwin - found it in the first five minutes at the exact spot described. He definitely knows his birds like the back of his hand. Many thanks!
