2013 – John Lawton Roberts

For more than 40 years, John Lawton Roberts has been watching, ringing, reporting on and photographing birds, primarily in Northeast Wales. John is most at home in the uplands, as are the subjects of his studies, particularly birds of prey. He has maintained studies of Ravens, Buzzards, Peregrines and Merlins since the 1970s, a period that has seen the recovery of these species. His ringing work has also helped to track the changing fortunes of Barn Owls and Ring Ouzels. And his knowledge of Ruabon Moor has provided a 30 year record of the changes in birdlife on a single site.
