28th May to 4th June 2017
My name is John Poyner, aged 50 and have worked as a wildlife guide around the Highlands and Islands for the past 17 years. I set up my own independent business “Highland Nature” in 2013 which mainly caters for those looking for day tours and short wildlife breaks based in Strathspey, after working for several Scottish wildlife tour companies as a guide. I’m an active birdwatcher (NB. NOT Twitcher, there is a big difference) as well as having a keen interest in all natural history.
I live in Nethybridge at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park along with my wife and two sons aged 11 and 5 and was raised in the rather different landscape of the industrial Black Country, first coming to live in Scotland in 1992.
I hope my tweets may give you a glimpse of some of the wonderful Natural History of the Highlands and Islands!
