Pete Burgess, Suburban Raptors
Pete Burgess has been observing, photographing and writing about birds of prey for over two decades. Most of this work has been carried out in the south west of Western Australia with a special interest over the last decade in the birds of prey that call the suburbs of Perth their home.
This work led to the release of the book, Suburban Raptors, which is a photographic journal of the wild raptors inhabiting the suburbs of Perth. Pete’s interest in raptors started as a teenager when he first noticed hunting Kestrels and Ospreys operating around coastal dunes. Now in his fifties, Pete’s passion and interest in wild raptors is keener than ever.
Jenni and I have been wandering over east for 3 years paddling all the good spots from Tasmania to north Queensland. Our presentation is collage of enhanced images aimed to inspire paddling at any level. We will also answer any questions on paddling the east coast of Australia.
