Today I am remembering our friend Brian Conduit who died on this date in 2009. He is responsible for introducing us to birding in Spain, and in general. He showed us all the good sites to see birds on the Costa Blanca and took us to some amazing places, including the Pyrenees. I think he would have been pleased that we have been back there many times and that we also made it to Extremadura where we were due to go with him and Rosemary before he became ill. He would also have been pleased to see the website developed and improved and still going strong. He was a founder member of the CBBC and is still missed by those who knew him. He was a lovely man. RIP Brian.
