Malcolm Wilson and Charlotte England caught their first BWHA's in the spring of 2017 and then started trapping in earnest the year after that to now, where they have caught 396 birds. (they have this fall to go yet!).

Malcolm will tell us how he first met Charlotte, an interesting story, and how he came to be in Canada. He will provide us with information on their Broad-winged Hawk trapping experiences and why they are doing it to get more information about the ongoing monitoring of birds returning to their breeding grounds, indicating stability of that particular habitat.

Malcolm Wilson is originally from London England, and has lived in Africa for 27 years, Uganda (7) and South Africa (20) and has been coming to Canada for the past 8 for winter, spring and fall migration seasons.

For the past 27 years he has run a tour company called African Affinity and specializes in bird banding expeditions as well as general safaris including mountain Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda. He is a bird- guide trainer and has worked in Uganda, Rwanda, the Congo, Mozambique, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Malawi and Ethiopia.

He is a qualified British Trust for Ornithology Bird banding trainer as well as a qualified South African bird banding trainer.  Malcolm has ringed/banded over 1000 species of birds.
