Bob Flood

Bob Flood lives in the Isles of Scilly, UK.  He is one of the world's best-known seabirders and his many accomplishments include being the main researcher and author of the highly successful series of multimedia guides to North Atlantic seabirds. He is a Research Associate at the Fitzpatrick Institute of African Ornithology, University of Cape Town. Bob has published many articles about tubenoses in leading journals.

As well as founding and leading “Scilly Pelagics”, Bob has a vast experience of organising international seabird expeditions and his “big moments” include being one of those responsible for rediscovering New Zealand Storm-petrel in 2003. Since then, Bob has continued to travel extensively in search of many of the world’s least known seabirds and some of the mythical species that he has seen are Bermuda Petrel, Fiji Petrel, Mascarene Petrel, Beck's Petrel, Titan Storm-petrel, and the ‘New Caledonian Storm-petrel’.

Bob has made multiple visits to Bermuda to study the critically endangered Bermuda Petrel and WildWings is delighted that he has agreed to lead this new and exclusive tour for us.
