I am very sad to hear of the recent death of Ken Simpson, on Wed. 9th July. I first met him when we were both a lot younger, at a BOC study meeting - he was, I think, speaking about petrels and other sea-birds. Most of us have a copy of Simpson and Day - mine has been well-used, and replaced at least once after some watery catastrophe. I also have "Birds in Bass Strait," an early book produced I think for BHP. In 1998 he and Zoe Wilson produced "Birdwatching in Australia and New Zealand" - it's well worth finding a copy if you can. I always found him very helpful with answers to my queries when I was a relative beginner, and later, until his birding days were interrupted by illness.
   My sympathies and best wishes to Zoe.
