During 2007 I researched the Echalaz Bird Collection and have subsequently published a new book on this collection. The cases have been kept in a locked cellar and not viewed by the public for nearly 10 years. Details are on the Historical page above.

Welcome to my personal website. I am a collector of all types of taxidermy and related ephemera such as photos, pictures, invoices, postcards etc. I have an interest in both Historical and Modern Taxidermy. I am not a full time taxidermist but just an amateur without alot of time. Taxidermy is my hobby. My personal collection comprises of old and new specimens and also Trophies I have hunted myself in South Africas Eastern and Northern Cape.
I am a Committee Member and the Membership Secretary of The Guild of Taxidermists.
Although a founder member of the BHTS I no longer have or would want to have any more connection with this society.
I am also an approved trophy measurer for Rowland Ward.
