Tom is a conservationist, ornithologist, sound recordist and environmentalist. Most recently he's been working for the Institute for European Environmental Policy on the European Commission's forthcoming Pollinators Initiative and case studies highlighting conservation measures that have produced large scale improvements in the status of species and habitats in Europe.

Tom has been ‘resident ornithologist’ for ‘Singing with Nightingales’ for the last three years. He will be sharing his lifelong passion for birds again in 2018, leading appetite-whetting bird-song walks and introducing participants to the life of Nightingales. He is part the team developing the experience at new venues.
