Tour Guide Profile: Mark Beevers
Mark Beevers hails from the UK and, while having been a police officer for over 30 years, he has now retired to become a full time birder, dedicated to his local patch and travel. Mark has done 23 tours to Africa, including six to Morocco and three to Egypt, and is one of few birders to have passed the 1800 mark for his Africa list. In addition, Mark has developed enviable people skills in his career and has an incredible knowledge of Palaearctic birds, much to the advantage of our North African tours.
Mark’s interest began in migrating birds and finding rarities in his local ‘patch’ and over the years has matured to a passion that has seen him travel the world for birds; including over 20 tours to Africa. He now, having enjoyed many years in his professional capacity as a PO, takes time to indulge in his passion for birds and this includes, inter alia, planning and leading bird tours, acting as voluntary manager at his local reserve and penning birding articles for journals and popular publications.
