Last count with Brian

Last count with Brian

The last time I saw Brian was when he went, together with Terry Glaysher and me, to Tuzla for the Mid Winter Bird's Count. That was on January 21 in 2008, and we finished the day with a tea in Bryan's house in Güvercinlik.
Here are three pictures from that day, two of the bird watchers and one of a species of birds that none of the articles mention but is more in danger than the flamingos; the Dalmatian Pelican (Pelicanus crispus) . We counted 49 specimens that day of this bird and according to what I remember Brian told us, there are only a few hundred of this species left in the world.
I also add the list of the last count as Bryan sent it to me a week later.

Simon the stork photo - click here for large pic and right click to save as desktop picture

I thought it would be nice to make this photo available in memory of Brian.
It's of 'Simon', the first stork that he and Allyson hand reared at their house on the coast near Guvercinlik. I've had it as my desktop background for about
4 years and have no intention of removing it, it's stunning
