    hello

    Steve Potter was born and raised in South Australia, and always had a passion for the outdoors with a keen interest in wildlife. His first introduction to birding however, was during a three year stint as a teenager, while his parents worked in Malawi, Central Africa. He started guiding with small groups around the Zomba Plateau, and the Liwonde National Park. Here Steve honed his identification skills and understanding of birdlife in general, also travelling to Zimbabwe, Kenya, Swaziland, South Africa and Madagascar. Since his return he has travelled extensively around Australia adding over 570 species from the mainland. He has also been active visiting Australia's neighbours, birding regularly in South-east Asia. Steve is also a keen surfer, photograhper and traveller and commenced guiding for Southern Birding Services around the Adelaide region in 2013.
