We were devastated to hear of Colin Wilkinson's recent death from Coronavirus. As well as a good friend and dedicated conservationist, Colin was a hugely talented graphic designer and artist. This is wonderfully demonstrated by the fact that in response to the briefest request from EWA Research Director Andy Gosler, Colin designed the EWA logo in a weekend. This was typical of Colin; hugely generous in giving up his time to help others in support of the birds and their conservation.
