I’m Elliot Montieth, based in Cheshire on the Wirral peninsular who’s been fascinated by ornithology and all things wild for the past 13 years, with particular interests in taxonomy, geology, scientific monitoring, ecology, acoustics and botany.
Ever since I first encountered the wonders of the natural world at the age of five having chanced upon a visit to WWT Martin Mere; I discovered that birds were my safe place and helped massively to help cope with my Asperger’s syndrome.
From that day onwards I’ve gone far and wide to explore the wider spectrum of the natural world. Soon I found myself captivate not only by geology, but also botany and more recently taxonomy with Common Chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita), Eurasian Wren (Troglodytes trogdlodytes) and Dunlin (Calidris alpina) being subjects that I find deeply interesting.
The curtains on College are now coming to a close which now means I look to what I wish to do after education; for the meantime my dream would be the first in my families history to study at University – Zoology at the University of Aberdeen would be the dream; but I’m looking beyond that and for me the ultimate goal would to work with for a scientific ornithological research organisation to help paint the bigger picture of some of our most threatened species.
