Wildlife Detective and Nature Consultant

If you find a feather, skull, or track of an animal, then I can identify it. My various artefacts, such as skulls and wings, are used by TV companies such as the BBC's Autumnwatch Unsprung, Tigress Productionsand Parthenon Entertainment (now Sky Vision)to help illustrate a particular story. I also help advise on different wildlife ideas and concepts.

Public Engagement


During the past 12 years I have worked as a local learning and outreach officer for Bristol Zoo, the RSPB, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and the University of Bristol (Bristol Dinosaur Project), working with schools, families, and other audiences. 




I provide training on a variety of subjects including: public engagement, developing and delivering school workshops, understanding learning (school-age and upwards), conducting bird surveys, and identifying wildlife.


Most recently, I have been delivering training to university postgraduates and staff including subjects such as engaging with schools, developing school workshops, presentation skills, and using plain language. 


I am working as an associate with Lighting Up Learning on the Natural Connections initiative, a three-year project to support schools with 'Learning in the Natural Environment' (LINE). In the Bristol area we have developed the project into the South West Collaboration
