We would like to inform our membership that unfortunately local birder Colin Selway passed away on Wednesday. Colin was a very knowledgeable and passionate birder who spent countless hours on our Walmsley Santuary reserve which formed part of his local patch. He also gave his time to the Society in many ways including serving on our Committee for several years and volunteering on work parties. Further information regarding his funeral and means of passing on any condolences will be posted in the near future.
