Margaret Boyd
Margaret has been a keen birder from an early age, growing up in the Ribble Valley, in Lancashire. She has lived in East Yorkshire for the past 25 years and has gained excellent knowledge of the local birding sites. She is an experienced teacher both in the classroom and in the outdoor environment; with a background in agricultural science and biology. She is currently an Education guide at Tophill Low nature reserve. She has held a number of volunteering roles for the BTO and the RSPB, carrying out farmland and garden bird surveys, volunteering as a spotter on the Yorkshire Belle seabird cruises, leading guided bird walks and running the local Wildlife Explorers club for many years. She has a wide interest in all aspects of the natural world but has a special interest in birds and moths in her local area. She is particularly passionate about teaching and learning outdoors and in her present role she is collecting research data that will contribute to a PhD thesis based around the impact of outdoor learning. She is always keen to engage, enthuse and inspire the next generation of naturalists.
