He graduated from the University of Sheffield in summer 2011 with a BSc in geography, before taking on a full-time position at BirdGuides that autumn. Josh's role at BirdGuides is of News Team Manager, ensuring the smooth running of the news service as well as playing a role in the dissemination of the weekly newsletter.
