Dr Sam Franks
I didn’t discover a passion for studying birds until I was in my twenties. After a couple of ornithological fieldwork jobs, I undertook my PhD studying the migration patterns of western sandpipers.
After several years researching waders in the Alaskan Arctic, I joined the BTO as a Research Ecologist, where my interests focus on exploring how our changing environment is influencing bird populations, particularly for waders and long-distance migratory birds. Currently, I am leading elements of the BTO’s breeding wader research, with a particular focus on the curlew. In my spare time, I’m a bird ringer and photographer.”
