The Forvie Team

The Forvie NNR team are based at our office at Little Collieston Croft at the north of the reserve.

They work together to make sure Forvie NNR is one of the best places in Scotland for wildlife and visitors.

Catriona Reid (Reserve manager)

Catriona is ‘on loan’ from our sister NNR at Muir of Dinnet, while erstwhile reserve manager Annabel is on secondment to our Property team. Catriona brings to Forvie a wealth of hands-on practical experience, ecological knowledge and good humour – all essential requirements here on the ‘front line’!

Daryl Short (Reserve officer)

Daryl knows the reserve and its birds like the back of his hand. He is the go-to man for practical knowhow and seabirds and passerines. However, most rare birds turn up when Daryl is on holiday so the rest of the team plan their birdwatching accordingly.

Patrick Antonakis (Reserve officer)

Patrick comes to us from volunteering with the RSPB and brings with him invaluable qualities of enthusiasm, height, youth and experience of the business world. He is the face of the reserve at weekends and the staff member you are most likely to meet on the paths at those times.
