Stewart Sexton, a Northumbrian born and bred, I have been interested in natural history for as long as I can remember.

When I'm not working, a lot of my time is spent birding and mothing, though I also venture into any other aspect of the wild environment that takes my fancy. In my very late 40's now ( ie 50), I'm still as keen as ever to get out and about in the countryside at every available opportunity.

I take a few photo's, but I'm no photographer and I like to draw and paint my subjects though I'm not an artist either!

I have previously served on the Northumberland and Tyneside Bird Club county records committee and served almost 10 years with a ringers C permit. I live in North Northumberland with my partner, Jane and our terrier, Bunty...
