‘I have learned more in a day about birds from Mike Carter, and about local plants from the late John Reid, (who was depicted in the December 2018 Birdlife magazine) than in ten years from books. I achieved the 600th tick for Australian birds last year on the WA trip. I am grateful to be awarded Life Membership of Birdlife Australia.’ Paul Chick.
