Ashley Beolens
Newsletter Editor & Social Media
Father, Birder, Photographer, Blogger & winner of most awkward volunteer photo. Ashley Beolens joined the charity in 2013 and quickly pushed to get more of a web presence for BFA, now running the social media side of the charity as well as editing the newsletter
Bo Beolens
Founder Chairman Bo Beolens is known more widely as the Fatbirder for his web presence, as the Grumpy Old Birder for his monthly column in a birding magazine and for several books such as the Eponym Dictionary of Birds and, A~Z of Birds. He has a form of arthritis for almost half a century - so he combined self-interest and a passionate belief that everyone should have equal opportunity when he founded BFA.
