Hugo Straker is delighted to announce that Nick Hesford joined GWCT Scotland’s Advisory team on 1 March.
Nick joined our Uplands Research team in 2017 with a PhD in Biodiversity and Community Ecology. Based in the Scottish Borders, Nick has worked on a variety of both English and Scottish projects including research on red and black grouse, capercaillie and wading birds. Most notably, Nick has led on the recent GWCT research projects on mountain hares in Scotland.
Having previously worked for both ecological consultancies and rewilding charities in Southern Scotland, Nick has helped deliver practical conservation and habitat restoration at the landscape scale. In his spare time, Nick enjoys training and working gun dogs and is involved with local game shoots in the Scottish Borders.
We are excited that he has accepted our offer to join our small Scottish team to support and help expand our increasingly busy Advisory Services.
