Remembering Dr Mike Nicholls

It is with sadness that we remember our dear friend, scientist, and falconer, Mike Nicholls, who died in 2021 and whose absence is still keenly felt within our community. Mike was not only a great supporter of ours, but he was also a dedicated contributor, generously offering his time and expertise to bolster our work through the industry expert ‘standards group’ #readmore.

In addition to his unwavering support, Mike engaged in numerous research projects and made significant contributions as a published researcher in respected journals. His legacy lives on through his work.

As we approach the New Year, we are excited to share our plans for Quarter 1 of 2024, which include some new resources and activities that embody Mike’s spirit of knowledge-sharing and advancement. Among these, we are proud to feature three outstanding pieces of work that Mike and his collaborators contributed to our growing store of Raptor Knowledge.

In particular, we will be sharing his papers on:

  • – Conservation: Falcons and their hybrids
  • – The role of public information
  • – Black Shaheen population trends

We present these papers as ‘Armchair CPD activities,’ each offering valuable insights and collectively contributing hours of annual CPD for your professional development records.

We are committed to providing 7.5 hours of engaging and informative resources and activities each quarter. These opportunities are designed to enhance your professional standing through your continuing professional development programme. Learn more about in our short article about CPD obligations for licenced professionals #gotoarticle

and remember to record this reading activity in your CPD record upon completion!

As we look ahead to 2024, we are dedicated to continuing our support for bird of prey professionals by fostering a community that thrives on knowledge, collaboration, and continuous improvement.
