Paul began watching birds seriously from the age of twelve, when he started taking notes.
The early years were spent around Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottinghamshire, where as a teenager he trained to ring birds, was a volunteer warden, ran a nest box study and sat on the reserve management advisory committee and its bird records panel.
Since Leaving Nottinghamshire in the early eighties, he has been the bird recorder for Christchurch Harbour, sat on the Dorset Bird Club committee and records panel, lived on the southern edge of the New Forest, at the base of Spurn Point, close to the north London reservoirs, the Isles of Scilly and currently resides in west Norfolk, where he is the Media Manager for the British Trust for Ornithology, reading, writing and talking about birds.
