2014 – Peter Davis MBE

Having been warden of Lundy Bird Observatory from 1951, Skokholm from 1954 and Fair Isle from 1957, and after a short spell as BTO Migration Research Officer, Peter returned to Wales as Warden Naturalist for the Nature Conservancy, where he developed work to understand the impacts of big upland-management changes on wildlife. Arguably his most well-known contribution to conservation came with the Red Kite protection programme, and he subsequently became a founding trustee of the Welsh Kite Trust. In a voluntary capacity, he was Ceredigion bird recorder for many years and, with Hywel Roderick, co-authored the avifauna, Birds of Ceredigion.
