Glad to join the team! I’m a lifelong bird watcher born in 1974. I’m a biologist and agronomist and live in Kalmar, part of the huge Baltic flyway along the coast of SE Sweden. I’ve been involved in all kinds of different ringing projects and monitoring programs over the years, working with many small and large projects, both in Sweden and abroad. This has resulted in a deep interest in bird ID (including moult, ageing and sexing) as well as taxonomy. I am employed by the Swedish Ornithological Society as head of Ottenby Bird Observatory where the scientific work today focuses on bird migration, phenological analyses of long-term ringing series, providing zoonotic sampling for external institutions etc. Concerning bird ID, my primary interest lies within the Palearctic fauna and I enjoy traveling anywhere in the east. I was a member of the Swedish rarities committee 2002-2012 and since 2007 I also work as a tour leader for AviFauna.
