Tour Leader: Dave Nevitt

Naturetrek tour leader – Dave NevittDave has been a keen naturalist for over 35 years and loves nothing more than sharing his knowledge with others. His interest in birds started at a very young age and before long he wanted to learn more., so he trained to become a bird ringer. Dave was soon the youngest ringer in the country and found that it gave him an insight into the close-up world of birds that many never get to see. A keen ear ensured that the world of birdsong was Dave's next passion. Working in the travel industry for many years, Dave has taken over 75 foreign trips to 54 countries and this experience is invaluable every time he raises his binoculars, wherever he is! Dave developed an interest in butterflies and dragonflies many years ago. He also has an infectious enthusiasm for moths, and Dave now takes his moth trap with him on many of his trips. Dave has an Honours Geology degree so is well qualified to advise on rocks and geomorphology as they affect both the landscape and wildlife. As a keen visitor to many bird observatories, Dave has a particular fascination with sea-watching - he was the first to start watching from the now famous Sheringham seafront in the 1970s. Conducting Breeding Bird Surveys, being the county Glow-worm co-ordinator and organising the Atlas Survey are just a few of the activities Dave is involved in. Somehow he also finds time to be an active member of his community, being on the Parish Council, Chairman of the Village Hall Committee and Governor of several charities.
