  4. Gordon you will be sadly missed but will always have a place in our hearts. A true friend, mentor, inspiration, and always up for a chat and a whisky. Many great times shared and was a wonderful experience sharing a life moment when you saw your first Lessor Sooty Owl, even if it took 96 years. Many great memories shared. One of the funniest was when you and Tom were wearing each others glasses for four days without realising you both had picked up the wrong ones in Africa! Your knowledge for wildlife and birds was a inspirational and amazing, I personally learnt so much from you. You will always be in our hearts and always with us whenever we are out amongst Mother Nature, a place you where always happy to be. Love always Tina, Wayne, Rita & Tom.
