Jono Leadley
Jono is likely to be found wandering around Wheldrake Ings near York looking at what migrant birds he can find, or perhaps trying to identify plants in the meadows, or hanging out at the local landfill site looking at gulls. He has a wide-ranging and lifelong interest in wildlife and has worked in nature conservation for 15 years. Currently, Jono works for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust where he heads up the development team, being responsible for fundraising and communications. Jono has guided at both home and abroad, including trips to Argentina, Costa Rica, Norfolk, the Hebrides and around Yorkshire, and has spent months conducting research in Madagascar and Indonesia. Starting with an interest in birds, Jono has spread his wings in the last couple of decades and is constantly trying to improve his naturalist skills, with a current focus on moths and bees.
