On Saturday 11th March 2017 the annual Herts Bird Club/BTO conference was hosted by Affinity Water in Hatfield. Despite the lure of the mild spring weather and the first trickle of spring migrants starting to arrive it was well attended by over 100 people. The chair of the Herts Bird Club, Peter Delaloye addressed the conference and thanked everyone for their support over the past year.
We are very sad to report that Tom Kittle, a highly respected and well liked Hertfordshire birder and naturalist, died on 23 August 2016.
Tom, originally from south London, lived in Codicote. He was a mathematician and worked at British Aerospace at Stevenage until his retirement.
