Joined up Ecological Thinking

What my customers say...

Twenty years of hands-on field experience and multi-disciplinary expertise is what makes Mark Tunmore stand out.

Here’s what customers have to say:

Mark is one of the best all-round ecologists I have worked with.

This gives Mark (and the client) a distinct advantage as you can be assured that nothing will be missed and a comprehensive and pragmatic outcome will be the result.

Principal Ecologist | Tidal Lagoon Power

We never realized just how many species inhabit the wood.

We found the report fascinating, a real eye opener and very easy to read and understand all the information.

We have employed Mark Tunmore regularly over the last 10 years on a variety of projects.

His prompt advice and professionalism has enabled us to build valuable long-term datasets and to tailor our management to better protect and enhance the ecological value of our National Nature Reserves

Phil Bowler
Natural England Site Manager | Goss Moor National Nature Reserves

After 15 frustrating months, we were told by the planners that we needed a bat and owl survey to submit in support of our application to renew our roof.

Not knowing where to turn, and worried by stories in the press, we contacted Mark following recommendation from our builder. Working to a well-defined schedule, by the time Mark had completed and successfully submitted the results from the second survey we had become strong advocates for the furry creatures – so much so that we commissioned our builder to incorporate bat entries into the new roof!

Mark has worked with me on upland breeding bird surveys in England, Scotland and Wales, using 'Brown & Shepherd' and Common Bird Census methods.

He is an experienced and dedicated fieldworker who gets the job done, however great the challenge.

Kevin Shepherd
Consultant Ornithologist

Mark has provided Cornwall Wildlife Trust with long term monitoring of Marsh Fritillary colonies on key nature reserves.

He is our go-to expert on this important species, and his yearly reports and data presentation are concise, targeted, functional and inform our management decisions with respect to this species. With Marks’ input we feel confident that the monitoring is in a safe pair of hands.

Mid Cornwall Reserves Manager | Cornwall Wildlife Trust

I have worked with Mark, as a client and work colleague for over 10 years.

Mark has a great deal of knowledge and skill in the field of birds and invertebrates. His work is very thorough, and he is very reliable and flexible, fitting survey work in even if we’ve not been able to give him much notice.
