Bird & Bat research

Birdwatching and bat research is a real passion of mine. Although I enjoy observing, photographing and filming all living creatures in nature, birds and bats are my speciality. Unfortunately many bird and bat species are threatened nowadays and it is our common responsibility to protect them and their habitats. Finding rare birds and bats is really cool, but much of my time I also count breeding and non-breeding birds and bats for local or national census projects. As the president of a local bird and mammals working group and local coördinator of several projects, I know that bird and bat census information is very valuable for the protection and conservation of these beautiful creatures and their habitats.
