Interview by Prairie Birder, Charlotte Wasylik

Just before I went away to East Africa for the summer, I gave an interview to Prairie Birder, Charlotte Wasylik. She is a fantastic role model, as a young female blogger and birder. She has an unbelievable number of followers, which gives me a little bit of hope.

I really enjoyed talking to Charlotte, as another young female birder and one doing well. It was the first time that I felt able to talk about how some birders have treated me. Last week the Wall Street Journal interviewed me about how I had been treated by some birders, but I didn’t feel ready to talk about it openly.

Charlotte lives on the Prairies in Alberta, Canada and has a really well organised blog with loads of varied posts. She has been blogging since 2010 and has done loads of courses/internships for young birders. There seems to be a lot going on over the other side of the Atlantic.

It would be good to meet one day and maybe I can visit her on her farm in Alberta.

Lyrical, poignant and insightful.’ - Margaret Atwood

This is my story; a journey defined by my love for these extraordinary creatures. Because large or small, brown, patterned or jewelled, there is something about birds that makes us, even for just moments at a time, lift our eyes away from our lives and up to the skies.
