It is really sad to report the news I received last night from Steve's wife Julie. Steve died suddenly yesterday.
Steve was a local birdwatcher who regularly frequented Ringstone, Scammonden and the former Elland Gravel Pits as well as many other Calderdale sites and further afield. He has been a regular reporter over the last few years to the local birders grapevine and his contributions will be greatly missed along with his friendship good humour and expertise. A big man often seen in his small white van checking out the local sites. We will greatly miss you Steve.
On behalf of local birders we offer our deepest sympathy to Julie and their family at this sad time.
