Humphrey Sitters – Close call in Brazil

As many of you know Humphrey Sitters who lives in Beer apologised to us for not being free to attend the launch of our New Devon Bird Atlas last Friday although he’d kindly written the foreword.  He explained that he was spending three weeks doing wader surveys along the north coast of Brazil.

Today we discovered from the local Seaton free paper “The View from Seaton” that he and the team of scientists he is working with had a close call when the catamaran they were on sunk suddenly.
