From Mark Wilson -
'Over the years many of the readers of and contributors to this blog will have met John Evans at the various birding locations and hides across the county. Some of you will know that John has been undergoing a long battle against cancer and I’m sad to have to inform you that he lost that battle in hospital on Saturday morning. An enthusiastic birder and photographer, with a marvellously dry sense of humour. he will be sadly missed not least by me as he was quite happy to say when my pictures were rubbish!'
