BASC welcomes new deer officer

BASC’s game and deer team has welcomed Audrey Watson as a new deer officer.

A graduate in Ecology and Forestry from Edinburgh and Pennsylvania State Universities, Audrey has worked for BASC since 2011 as the Green Shoots Wales officer, having previously worked in countryside management in local and national government and in the charitable sector.

She said: “I am very excited to be moving over to the game and deer team and am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with our members in my new role within the organisation.”

Glynn Evans, BASC’s head of game and deer management, said: “I am pleased to welcome Audrey to the team. She has a wealth of practical deer stalking knowledge which will help us deliver and further develop the services we provide to members.”

BASC vice chairman John Thornley said: "Audrey will enhance our commitment to providing our members with the very best advice and opportunities for deerstalking. She has very broad experience and knowledge of the deer world which will be an asset to the existing team."
