Dave Pullan

Dave is a renowned birder and much sought-after tour Leader, with vast experience in Scotland and worldwide. A keen field birder who lives near Boat Of Garten, Dave has lived in Strathspey since 1982. He is a member of the British Birds Rarities Committee and has found a respectable number of rarities himself including the last British sighting of Steller's Eider (at Hopeman in November 2000). He was also the first to identify the first British record of Short-billed Dowitcher. He has visited almost all the Scottish inhabited islands on birding trips, (and a good number of uninhabited islands too), with, especially, numerous repeat visits to Shetland.

Dave is an experienced world traveller on six continents, and has guided over 150 overseas trips in 35 countries (over 50 overseas destinations).
