Introducing Ian Mileham

Born 1961 Ian grew up in the Little Karoo town of Oudtshoorn, South Africa. His first interest in nature was in Primary School when he started observing birds in the neighbourhood.

A graduate in Industrial Psychology & Anthropology in 1986 at the then University of Port Elizabeth, now Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University which is situated within a nature reserve, stimulated his interest in nature and especially birds. In 1985 began keeping records of species sighted.

Having travelled extensively in most of South Africa, parts of Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Mozambique, Ian has recorded over 660 bird species in Southern African sub-region. (South of the Cunene and Zambezi Rivers)

His interest in birding has created an affinity for and knowledge of other forms of nature including plants, trees, insects & other small organisms and creatures.

Telophorus zeylonus

The Bokmakierie is commonly known by its onomatopoeic name and is easily recognisable by the bright yellow underparts and broad black breast band. The vivid yellow tip to the dark green tail is conspicuous when the bird is in flight or diving into the bushes for cover.

"Very pleasant and interesting trip to the West Coast National Park with a very dynamic guide who appeared to have an excellent experience in birding. Thanks a lot."
Jacques and Michèle Lemonne

"Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable tour of the Cape Wetlands. Your expert advice enabled me to boost my species list to a creditable 94 for the week. Even my wife was surprised at how attractive a visit to a Sewage Farm could be. We plan another trip next year which may coincide with the cricket and we'll be sure to engage your services again. Once more, many thanks."
Randolph and Rosamund Jones - Cardiff, Wales

Richard Grant had a note from Terry Bond who, with Rosemary, enjoyed their time in Cape Town. He was very complimentary about the way Ian handled the 5 Habitat Tour. Terry was over the moon about his Greater Painted Snipe at Paarl Bird Sanctuary!
