Colin Wilkinson Death | Obituary – Colin Wilkinson sadly away passed, Colin worked first in the RSPB Central England Region (the cinderella of RSPB regions – lots of people, not so many birds) which morphed into the Midlands Region. He was based in the Banbury office and more recently at Otmoor. His expertise was in planning issues.
Colin was a talented artist and as part of his contribution to the Oxford Swift City project, he contributed illustrations to the reprint of David Lack’s book Swifts in a Tower. I’ve looked at them again this afternoon and they are very good. Colin’s cover illustration for the book is wonderful, capturing as it does the bird and the Oxford University Museum of Science building so well.
We express our sympathy and deepest condolences to Colin Wilkinson ’s family today and in the days, weeks, months, and years that are to come as they cope with his passing. May his soul rest in peace.
It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Colin Wilkinson. His knowledge and contributions to the Nene Valley Landscape and NIA provided the groundwork for Nenescape. We aim to recognise his achievements in the work we do. https://t.co/5ZusQoN90h
