Our Team

Fay Brotherhood

Fay Brotherhood is based in Hertfordshire and mainly serves the South East, South Midlands, East Anglia and London. Her ecological adventures began in 2009 when after studying a BTEC in Countryside Management, she gained work as a ranger at Bradgate Park; a medieval deer park in Leicestershire. This was followed by a journey through degree to masters through which she supported herself as freelance basis as a pet portrait artist, musician, dog walker, housekeeper, gardener and once… a singing Christmas elf.

After her MSc, Fay joined Arbtech’s ASSET course in 2019. She was quickly promoted to a lead surveyor and even given an interview for a role. She was pipped to the post this time, but stuck around because she loved the company ethos and after spending the best part of two seasons leading bat surveys was offered a job in 2020. Fay has been doing most of her training under the wing of Craig and as a consultant hopes to learn lots from his enviable ability to get results for clients with competence, speed and efficiency.

Fay’s first love has always been botany and vegetation assessment, but since doing the ASSET course she developed an all-consuming interest in bats. She is an active member of her local bat group and was involved in locating the third known maternity roost of Barbastelle in Hertfordshire. She is also a member of the Hertfordshire flora, dormouse and amphibian and reptile groups.

Fay likes bats so much she even wrote a song about them, as part of her other life as a keen creative. She’s a skilled fine artist and a talented singer/songwriter who performs both as a solo act and as a member of two bands.
