I am interested in the factors shaping bird distributions and my research is helping understand what causes them to change. I oversee the research programme of the Breeding Bird Survey at the BTO and am keen to see the use of birdwatchers’ records for research and conservation through appropriate analytical design and novel data visualisation.
