Norman F. Ellison (1893 – 1976) was an English radio presenter and author who made radio programmes about nature and the countryside for the BBC's Children's Hour,[1] under the pseudonym Nomad the Naturalist, and wrote on the same subjects both as Nomad and in his own name.

Born in Liverpool in 1893,[2] he signed up as a private in the 1/6th Battalion, King's Liverpool Regiment,[3] at the outbreak of World War I,[2] and served in the trenches in Belgium.[2] He saw action on The Somme[3] and at Flanders[3] but was discharged in 1917[3] suffering from trench foot.[3] His war diaries were published in 1997.

In later life, he lived at West Kirby,[4] on the Wirral Peninsula, Cheshire.[1] He and Eric Hosking would watch birds together at Hilbre Island.[4] Six of his books were illustrated by his friend Charles Tunnicliffe.[1]
