Unfortunately I've just seen some very sad news posted on the WildbirdSingapore mailing-list, the 'Father of Digiscoping' Laurence Poh passed away earlier today.

He finally succumbed to a grave illness after battling for several years.

I'm sure many birders will be aware of his great contributions to 'digiscoping' in Malaysia and the rest of the world, he was the direct inspiration for me to start digiscoping in Australia and was very generous with advice and images. He will be sadly missed, but hopefully his work will be an inspiration to all.

I offer my condolences to his wife and family,

Tom Tarrant
