I am a Northern Irish software engineer and amateur naturalist, living and working in Islington, London, where it is obligatory to be a Guardian-reading leftie.


Scientific name tags

Why have I tagged your photo with a scientific name? I'm an admin for the Field Guide: Birds of the World. I also maintain an external index of the pool at flickr-fbw.co.uk. So I fix typos in scientific name or add synomyms for the bird list we use in the group.


Reproduction: My photos are mostly published under the Creative Commons licence so you can use them (with a name credited) without asking me. If you would like a larger original of one of my pictures, just drop me a line.


Email: You can email via the mail link on this page.


Disambiguation: I am not Alastair Rae the filmographer or the physicist of the same name.
