Bringing wildlife closer

I am an occasional guest on Bristol City FM radio's weekly Wednesday wildlife shows, called Shepherds Way, discussing all manner of wildlife topics - winter wildflower ecology, bees, gardens, the City Nature Challenge, how to be a naturalist and get better at wildlife recording, upcoming talks and more.

I aim to bring wildlife closer, help us improve our understanding ​of it, conserve it and provide guidance on resolving conflict. 
​Based in Bristol, I offer a range of services in ecology consultancy, science, publishing, ​teaching and nature discovery.
I am also the founder of One by One Conservation, an environmental campaign group.

Winter Sleep: A Hibernation Story is written by me and children's author Sean Taylor, illustrated by Cinyee Chiu. A young boy shares his woodland adventure and discovers where life disappears to in winter. This is a story of childhood wonder, enriched with science, natural history and incredible creatures.
​I will be giving a talk for young people in the Wild Zone at BirdFair this year, about this book. Birdfair is a national 3-day event celebrating nature and raising funds for conservation, with a range of talks on lots of fascinating subjects. You can book tickets for Birdfair on this link: here

Join me for a one day course on Thursday June 27 to learn about our amazing wild flowers. This event is aimed at beginner and improver botanists. We will focus on some common flower families, how to identify them, learn about their ecology and practice identifying what's around us, exploring the stunning wild flower gardens and nursery at Feed Bristol. Booking is via Avon Wildlife Trust: here.

I will be speaking at an evening of talks in Bristol on July 10 alongside author and campaigner Anna Hughes, MEP Molly Scott Cato and airport campaigner Libby Scott. Anna is steering the UK Flight Free 2020 campaign. More on Anna's campaign here
This event is free but booking is essential, on this link: here
