2016 – Steve Roberts

Steve has spent his spare time seeking out and researching birds and in recent years has been a chief-nest finder for the BBC Springwatch team. Steve’s long-term monitoring of Hobby, Goshawk and Honey-buzzard has added considerably to the accumulated knowledge of what had been thought of as difficult birds to study. Two landmark papers in British Birds in 1999 and 2014 synthesise a lifetime’s work on Honey-buzzards: understanding of the species’ habits and behaviour during the breeding season being a critical step towards their effective conservation.
