Mark Boyd - Author

Mark Boyd has been fascinated by wildlife since he was a very small boy. He grew up in Dorset, where his love of birds, badgers, butterflies and other wilidlife flourished. He trained as a bird ringer in his teens, studied Ecology at Loughborough University and wrote his doctorate on primroses at the Open University. Since 1989, he has worked for the RSPB, first as an editor, then web manager, youth manager and, today, as head of youth and education. Throughout that time, he has remained passionate about wildlife. He is still a keen birdwatcher and ringer, and also a regular moth trapper and wildlife artist.
