Sander Lilipaly (1972) started looking at birds when he was six years young. At first he stayed close to home, finding birds together with his cousin Leo Apon in his home province of Zeeland.
Since the early nineties Sander has been working for the Dutch government as a waterfowl and breeding bird specialist. Together with colleague Pim Wolf he can often be found counting mammals and seabirds on the North Sea, usually from a small plane. Sander has a soft spot for both waders and pelagic birds, but he also enjoys birding his local patch looking for the common and uncommon birds that are around.
For Birding Holland Sander will be guiding people around his home province of Zeeland in the Southwestern part of The Netherlands.
