Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW) and Aquatic Ecologist
Patrick Quinn BSc (Hons) ACIEEM, AMIFM Aquatic Ecologist & Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW).
Patrick joined Woodrow in October 2017 as part of the Company’s plans to expand its aquatic ecological services. Patrick has extensive experience in aquatic and fisheries ecology. He is also very experienced in with regard to overhead line construction and general construction in sensitive peatland habitats. Patrick has worked as project ECoW on various construction sites across Ireland. He also designs method statements for the restoration of blanket bog habitats. Woodrow sent him to England for advanced training on electric fishing and he persuaded us to buy a set of this survey equipment.
Patrick has conducted extensive habitat surveys of sensitive peatland areas to inform Appropriate Assessment reporting. This has included lowland blanket bog, wet heath and upland blanket bog. This includes benthic invertebrates, aquatic macrophytes, hydro-chemical water analysis and SSRS assessments, as well as species surveys and species habitat suitability surveys (including salmonids, lampreys, freshwater crayfish, freshwater pearl mussel surveys and electric fishing surveys!).
Sadly Patrick is a Liverpool FC supporter!
