My name is Trystan Simon Williams
and over the coming weeks I shall be out and about visiting our regions Nature Reserves and finding out what is going on I shall be chatting to some of the people who work and volunteer their time to look after our countryside and the wildlife, and looking at some of the animals, plants, birds etc that make our part of the world special.
I was asked to give a little bit of an introduction as to whom I am I thought I would start at the
very beginning. Here is a little about my background. A Long
Logo time ago, I grew up in Southport, and attended Meols Cop High School. I have always been interested in wildlife, regularly visiting the WWT
center at Martin Mere with the ambition to someday work there!
Whilst I love all wildlife, my 'specialty' as it were is birds, and I have been a volunteer at several RSPB reserves around
the country, as well as about five years volunteering as Education Assistant for WWT Martin Mere. In June 2000, I graduated from Edge Hill with a Bachelor of Science
Honors Degree in

Field Biology and Habitat
Management. During my studies, I spent a lot of time in the Highlands of Scotland researching the endangered grouse the Capercaillie. My study was the first of its kind making me one of very few people in the UK who had studied this species to that level. Since graduation, I have enjoyed two years as seasonal Education/Information Assistant employed by the National Trust at the
Freshfeild 'Red Squirrel Reserve'.
