(He, him)
PhD student studying the diet of urban peregrines, University of Bristol

Having studied what urban-dwelling peregrines eat during the past 25 years, I am now doing a PhD with the University of Bristol studying this aspect of their behaviour in more detail. I am analysing long term datasets of prey eaten by urban-dwelling peregrines as well as prey data from intensively studied nest web cameras during the nesting season.

Away from my research work I am a freelance naturalist, broadcaster and learning consultant engaging a wide range of audiences with nature and science. Activities range from tour guiding around the world, dawn chorus walks listening to birdsong, bird surveys and taking schools fossil hunting. I live in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire and regularly take people out to see its wildlife from wild boar to goshawks.

I have done extensive work with the BBC as a contributor, consultant and reporter. My learning consultancy work involves developing learning resources for wildlife and heritage organisations as well evaluation of projects and advising on how thesy can reach out to more people.
