Dr Mark Eaton

Mark Eaton is a Principal Conservation Scientist in the Monitoring section of the RSPB Centre for Conservation Science.

He is responsible for overseeing much of the RSPB’s involvement in monitoring of wildlife – through surveys, red-listing, indicators and ‘state of’ reporting – in the UK and internationally. This role has included overseeing UK raptor surveys, conducted under the Statutory Conservation Agency and RSPB Annual Breeding Bird Scheme (SCARABBS), since the 2003 Golden Eagle survey. He is the Chair of the UK Rare Breeding Birds Panel and the European Bird Census Council, and an active fieldworker and birder in his adopted home county of Northumberland.
