Memorial to a great birder and all-round naturalist...

It's been over three years since Alan Bundy passed away so suddenly, leaving a huge gap in the lives of everyone who had been lucky enough to know him and experience his passion for wildlife. Today, thanks to the hard work of some of his closest friends, a permanent memorial seat was officially opened in his name out on Shapwick Heath National Nature Reserve in Somerset - one of Alan's favourite places. The seat overlooks Noah's Lake (click here for a map) and will no doubt be witness to many rare birds over the coming years, a very fitting tribute to one of Somerset's great characters, he really was one of nature's gentlemen...
