Some info about me:
For many years I volunteered at my local Ornithological group participating in surveys and bird counts. Once I had finished school I travelled to Bangor University in North Wales where I received a 2:2 BSc Ecology degree, with honours. While at university, I featured in a BBC Wildlife Christmas documentary about birds.
My first job in conservation was on the Farne Islands National Nature Reserve (NNR), which is owned by the National Trust, in the north of England. The Farne Islands are Britain’s largest sea bird colony.
The next conservation post was at Blakney Point (NNR) in Norfolk which is also owned by the National Trust. The post involved protecting the largest Sandwich Tern colony in Britain.
I gained a permanent post as Assistant Ranger for Teignbridge District Council on Dawlish Warren (NNR). I stayed three years at this site and spent a lot of my time giving talks and guided walks to schools and Universities.
I also worked for Birdwatch Ireland. This was a research project studying the seasonal distribution and habitat use of Chough populations.
I currently have my own Business Called Keystone Ecology. I am involved with local community projects. Other clients of mine are Ecan, Christchurch City Council, DOC, and Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust. I am involved with restoration projects, education and ongoing monitoring of some of our endangered nesting birds.
