What we do About us Staff and trustees Nick Forde - Trustee Nick is a former stockbroker who now divides his time between London and Norfolk. He has a young family to whom he enjoys teaching about the countryside. The loss of the dawn chorus in his London garden drew his attention to the problem of declining songbird populations. Nick is the London representative of the charity and helps with media communications. He has brought the work of SongBird Survival to public attention on TV, radio, and in national and regional newspapers across the UK. Nick also plays a key part in contacts with ministers and other conservation organisations.
