Description

Tim talks with Tom Squires – Manchester Met PhD student studying mynah birds in Indonesia...

In this interview we talk about his PhD and the Asian Songbird Crisis. We also talk about what its like doing a PhD generally, doing any kind of ecology further education really. We also discuss the merits of being a generalist, and about that most mysterious of attributes: being a birder.

Great Podcast. Really interesting listening to Tim talking to Tom Squires about their time at university together, their shared interest in Conservation and how Tom became interested in Asian songbirds. Well done. I'm looking forward to the next episode and I loved the video of the Beaver eating lettuce. Hilary Wyatt.
