Dr Kate Vincent
Kate joined BSG Ecology in 2006 following the completion of her PhD.
Kate has project managed ornithological and ecological inputs to onshore wind farms, and worked on behalf of multi-national construction companies, local authorities, Natural England and RSPB. Kate’s outputs include Ecological Impact Assessments across a wide variety of sectors, bird strike assessments in relation to airports, habitat management plans and Habitats Regulations Assessment Reports.
Kate’s specialism is ornithology and she has been involved in the design and implementation of large-scale programmes of bird survey, particularly in relation to wind farm developments. She has a strong interest in urban ecology, in particular integrating biodiversity within buildings and designing new developments to improve their biodiversity interest. She also has experience of working with other protected species including water vole, otter, great crested newt, badger and bats as well as undertaking Phase 1 Habitat Surveys. Kate holds Natural England Scientific Survey Licences for great crested newt and bats.
Her research PhD into the decline of the urban house sparrow in Britain was a multi-funded project involving RSPB, Natural England and De Montfort University. Kate has also undertaken research on the impact of the Sullom Voe oil terminal on local seabird populations in the Shetland Isles and has worked for the Wildlife Trusts as an information officer.
