Gareth Jones

Gareth has lived in Gloucestershire for most of his life and as a youngster loved nothing more than walking along the River Frome with his Father watching Water Voles and catching the very occasional glimpse of a Kingfisher.  He is now an A permit ringer of all Raptor Pulli for Glos Raptors. Gareth uses trailcams and camera traps to capture images of wildlife here in Gloucestershire but has also used them all over the world.  He has acted as an expert adviser for a trailcam company, has been on local radio and national TV and is also a Police volunteer in wildlife crime but especially Raptor persecution.
