About The Event
The diversity of British wildlife is fascinating and often overlooked. Join us on this one day workshop where we will explore and learn about some of the fantastic flora and fauna that is present on the farm.
Nick has had an interest in wildlife and birds in particular for more than forty years. After pursuing a non-wildlife career in Accountancy and many years of volunteering as a warden for the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, he decided to work for the RSPB as a Research Assistant, then working on and running the Wessex Stone-curlew Project before heading to Newcastle to be the Area Conservation Manager for Northeast England, Yorkshire & The Humber. The latter job led to many days inside doing spreadsheets, just like accountancy! So Nick decided to return to Wiltshire where he is now freelance naturalist working with landowners to help them bring wildlife into their thought processes and leading walks for people new to wildlife watching, but wanting to try it out. Having studied a number of taxa over the years besides birds, Nick was offered a Fellowship by the British Naturalist Association in recognition of his all-round knowledge. He is also currently the Wiltshire county bird recorder, helping people understand what birds they are seeing and what they can do to see more.
