Kate Fox

Training Officer

Kate’s role is to encourage birdwatchers to support and engage with BTO, and to train them to take part in surveys: both central to BTO’s goals. Kate is responsible for helping to create and deliver educational material and training activities around bird identification and BTO surveys. She provides support to the survey teams to help increase the profile of BTO’s long-term monitoring schemes and recording programmes.

Interests & Responsibilities

Kate is a keen birdwatcher and ringer, with a passion for engaging others with the natural world.

Prior to joining the BTO, she studied Zoology at university and developed her field ID and monitoring skills through volunteering as a fieldwork assistant alongside her studies and time spent at bird observatories.

She enjoys sharing her interest to inspire others, particularly young people, and has run events with a range of organisations, including working with the BTO Youth Team as a Youth Representative.
