A big part of'Shark Friday!' on 9 August
Jamie is 23 years old and is studying BSc (Hons) Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation Science at the University of Suffolk. He is currently a council member of the Suffolk Bird Group and is passionate about encouraging the younger generation to try birdwatching as a means of connecting with nature. He finds that his connection with nature helps him to manage his Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), which is why he supports ‘Bird Therapy’ by Joe Harkness.
Jamie is a former volunteer guide and reserve assistant at RSPB Minsmere. He has experience of surveying priority species such as Water Vole, Slow-worm, Little Tern (Suffolk priority), Bittern, Nightjar and Bat spp. Thanks to the opportunities provided by his university lecturers, Jamie is interested in researching autonomous recorders as an alternative survey method for birds and bats.
Jamie has discovered a new passion for marine life, especially sharks, while volunteering with Siren.
