As Vice Convenor of the East of England Section I was largely responsible for organising the AGM and also a successful noctule roost visit this year.

I have good IT knowledge, which will help the Committee keep up with technological advances. I bring enthusiasm, good humour and an efficient approach that I hope will allow me to continue to work with the Committee to deliver a range of exciting events in 2017.

Beck Harrington-Harding Grad CIEEM

I am an ecologist with four years’ experience and a graduate member of CIEEM.  I have a degree in Conservation and the Environment, hold licences for bats and GCN and am working towards obtaining a dormouse licence.  In my spare time you’ll find me grubbing around in old buildings carrying out volunteer bat surveys for Natural England, dashing round Suffolk picking up sick/injured bats for rehabilitation and release back into the wild or roaming the woods helping out with the NDMP.

I am enthusiastic team player and am happiest when supporting others from the side lines.

I previously worked for another consultancy but have also worked for conservation organisations which has broadened my knowledge base. I have undertaken a wide variety of surveys and specialise in mammals, including dormice and water voles. I am an enthusiastic team member and will bring my experience and this enthusiasm to the committee, with the aim of helping the East of England group to expand and develop into a strong ecology network.


James SimpsonCommittee Member
James Simpson MCIEEM (co-opted)

I have worked in the environmental and conservation sector for over 17 years.  I have worked in a variety of roles within the public, private, self-employed and charitable sectors.  This work has ranged from the delivery of countryside stewardship, managing a SSSI nature reserve called Idle Valley, to more latterly working as a consultant ecologist. 

In my latest role I lead the south east team for ADAS and provide expertise in both botany and amphibians.  This technical delivery has provided me with working on schemes that include the monitoring of Countryside Stewardship Schemes for English Nature to acting as the lead ecologist on the Woking GCN pilot project.  This varied and diverse range of experience can provide many insights into the industry and assist with the local committee.  


Lindsay StrongeCommittee Member
Lindsay Stronge Grad CIEEM

I am a graduate ecologist with two years experience. I work for RSK Environment and am based in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. I have a particular interest in bats and botany but also hold licences for GCN/Smooth snakes/Sand lizard and Roman Snail.

I’m very enthusiastic about ecology and a keen organiser of activities and events in my spare time. I’m a career changer and still new to this sector, but I hope to organise events of interest to junior and aspiring ecologists.
