BSC (HONS) Ecological Science, PhD Zoology


Wylie Horn is a Field Ecologist at Bioscan, joining the company in August 2021. After graduating in 1985 he worked for the RSPB as a reserve warden prior to working on the ‘Seabirds and Sandeels’ project in Shetland. This led to Wylie doing a PhD in Zoology, focusing on the foraging ecology and breeding performance of Arctic and Common terns on Coquet Island, Northumbria.

Following 19 years working in IT service management at the University of Oxford, Wylie worked for the United Kingdom Overseas Territories Conservation Forum, for the RSPB as a Curlew Survey Research Officer in the Upper Thames river catchment, for the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) as a farm advisor working with a local farmer cluster, and on various conservation related projects for Wytham Woods.

A keen ornithologist and natural historian, Wylie is an active member of the Upper Thames Wader Group and the Flora Guardian for the Wytham Woods ‘Arable Triangle’ site on behalf of the Oxford Flora Group.
