He has been involved with wader and wildfowl counts since 1975. In his 'spare' time Pete has been involved with the Farlington Ringing Group since the late 1970's, and more recently has been driving force behind a series of detailed colour-ringing projects on a variety of species in the Solent. These include Brent Geese, Wigeon and various waders in Southampton Water, as well as Grey Plover, Greenshanks and Black-tailed Godwits throughout the Solent.
