Jozef Leestmans

Jozef is a native of Flanders, and formerly a Reserve Manager for the Flemish Government and for the nature organisation Natuurpunt in Belgium.

A highly experienced European birder, Jozef guided for Heatherlea during several years while he was living in the Highlands, and also led tours for us in Belgium, Holland and Armenia. Jozef has become an expert in guiding in Armenia, where he guided several trips for birders and people interested in culture. Jozef was the first person to find a White-eared Bulbul in Armenia! He says 'I just love Armenia so much that I can't help but promote it!'     

We are delighted to welcome him back to the team in 2023.
