I wish to advise the birding community that in the early hours of this
morning Fred Smith died peacefully in his sleep.  Having reached ninety in
March, Fred suffered a major stroke yesterday and did not re-awake.  As many
would be aware, he was amongst the best field observers of his generation
and it was my very great pleasure to bird with him on a regular basis for
more than forty years.  I will miss his gentle sense of humour and will
retain some wonderful memories of our times together with the birds.
