From a very early age, he wandered the moors, woods and rivers around his home in search of wildlife, often with the family dog, Bitw.

Upon leaving college, he returned to mid-Wales, initially working on a hill farm, then in the forestry, before starting work for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in 1985. His role as Species Officer for Wales entailed monitoring rare birds such as red kites, black grouse and chough, advising key landowners such as the Forestry Commission and National Trust, and investigating crimes against wild birds.
