When Nicholson went up to Hertford College, Oxford, in 1926, he initially did not join the Oxford Ornithological Society. After changing his mind, he was involved in the Christchurch Meadow ringing project and started the Oxford Bird Census in 1927. He organised the census of heronries in 1928, the first national bird census to be undertaken in Britain.
