Meet The Team

Michael Sinclair

Michael Sinclair

Hi, my name is Michael Sinclair, I’m 12 years old and live in Glasgow and am a member of the RSPB, BTO and SOC and many others. I’ve been interested in nature since I was 2 when my Grandad and I built a frog pond in the woods behind his garden. I’m particularly interested in wildlife photography and take photos for our local park, Linn Park. I enjoy visiting nature reserves including David Marshall Lodge, RSPB Leighton Moss and RSPB Baron’s Haugh. I also love RSPB Minsmere and Lackford Lakes which I visit each year with my family. I had 3 photographs shortlisted for the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2016 with one picture featuring in the published book. I do volunteering at RSPB Lochwinnoch where I will be recording species sighted on the reserve. When I’m older I would like a career involving wildlife management, possibly as a Reserve Manager. You can view my photographs and read my blog on my website.

Seth Parrott

Hi, my name is Seth and since a young age I have been fascinated with the world around me, from the smallest invertebrates to the largest vertebrate, the blue whale. As I aged my passion only became stronger, and my love of the ocean more defined, hence I am a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. I also see the need for conservation so started up LYCN in 2017, along with Jack Dawson, after leaving the Robert Carre Trust Environmental Society (Runners up in the 2016 Lincolnshire Environmental Awards) that same year. My other passions include videography and competitive cycling. In 2018 I hope to obtain my T permit from the BTO and even further in the future I plan to study BSc(Hons) Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology at Plymouth University, followed by a Masters and PhD, before going into a career with either WWF Australia or Ocearch specialising in sharks or marine mammals.

This June to August I am lucky enough to have 10 weeks in Australia: volunteering, filming, exploring, doing work experience and last but by no means least SCUBA diving.

James Miller

I’m James Miller, a young naturalist from Surrey. I’m a member of the RSPB, BTO, Surrey Badger Group and Surrey Bat Group and I have a passion for pretty much all wildlife. I display this passion through wildlife photography, art, blogging and documentary making, after I won a presenting competition in 2015. I have a particular fondness for badgers.

James McCulloch

James McCulloch

Hi, I’m James McCulloch, I’m 13 and live on the Sussex/Surrey border near Gatwick. I am interested in all aspects of the natural world, and therefore I compile a Pan Species List – which is currently well over 2000 species. I have particular passions for some of the under-recorded or less well-known groups such as bryophytes, fungi and invertebrates as a whole – although especially Coleoptera. My favourite places to visit in Sussex are Ashdown Forest  and Weir Wood Reservoir  In the future, one of my main goals is to get a PhD in one of the many topics within zoology and entomology. I would love to work as a researcher and scientist as well as a freelance writer.
