Steve West

Steve, a lifelong birder and conservationist, hails from Hampshire originally, where he spent time in his youth birding around Silchester Common and Pamber Forest, before moving to Norwich to study ecology at the UEA. At the age of 24 he moved to Catalonia, Spain, where he lives until this day.

Steve led his first birding tour in northern Spain in 1996, and since then has led tours throughout mainland Spain on a regular basis in Catalonia, Aragon, Navarra, Extremadura, Andalusia, Castilla y León, Cantabria and Asturias. He is the author of two birding-oriented books, the first of which was “Where the birds are in northeast Spain” (2004). Over the last few years he has developed a keen interest in Spanish butterflies and is always willing to divert some attention to them whenever he perceives a shared interest among tour participants!

Steve speaks fluent Catalan and Spanish. When not leading or organizing tours he spends his time writing, translating, holding workshops on environmental education to local schools and growing organic vegetables on a plot near his wife’s village in the Garrigues, to the south of the city of Lleida.
