Dear all,

Just a quick note to advise that I've written a post on the unfortunate recent death of an (unnamed) bird watcher and photographer in the West Kimberly in Australia's remote north-west at my blog, "The Northern Myth", at

I briefly discuss this sad event and also relate a few other mishaps suffered by by birders over the years and around as reported by Mark Cocker in his book "Birders Tales of a Tribe" and other sources.

If you have any experiences of your own or others that you'd like to contribute to this discussion please visit The Northern Myth and post a comment.
