Our members and supporters are essential to BTO's work and Deb ensures we serve our constituency to the highest standards while also reaching out to those new to BTO to encourage their involvement.

Interests & Responsibilities

Before joining BTO Deb piloted a study in the health benefits of connecting with nature and passionately believes the connection BTO provides through watching and studying birds benefits both people and wildlife.

She heads a Supporter Team that provide a personal service to members as well as offering help and advice to volunteers and the general public.  The team also help Deb deliver a programme of national events to promote our work and to provide opportunities for our members to have an active involvement in our work.

Since starting at BTO Deb has trained as a nest recorder and loves it.


Deb switched from a career in accountancy, most recently as part of the senior management team of Essex Wildlife Trust, to help bring people closer to our natural world.
