Somewhat belatedly I'd like to add a few words of my own to the many tributes to Alan Amery who sadly died very recently. Alan from Derbyshire was a real birding enthusiast who took almost as much joy from meeting old friends,of which he had many, as he did from seeing a rare bird. I had the pleasure of meeting him on many occasions when a good bird turned in the Midlands and on 'twitches' around the country. He was always the same, you were always sure of a genuinely warm greeting and a cheerful smile. I will miss him.
