Mr Nick Cutts

Deputy Director, Institute of Estuarine & Coastal Studies (IECS)

Summary

Nick has more than 25 years' experience as a professional ornithologist and specialises in estuarine avifaunal communities. He has carried out numerous surveys of estuarine and marine communities around the UK, with derived data used for a variety of purposes. These include ornithological baseline characterisation, appropriate assessments, environmental impact assessments and habitat management. Most recently, Nick has been investigating the effects of disturbance on waterbirds from a range of anthropogenic sources. The aim is to establish a better evidence base for consenting requirements, as well as tools to assist estuarine planners and managers.
