Son of the land comes to rest

A son of the land, the ornithologist Richard Dean, has come to rest. Long live the land, and long live Richard Dean !
We are among those privileged to have spent time with the late Richard Dean and his wide, the researcher Sue Milton, at their home in Prince Albert. This was always memorable — he was fun, open, clear, and riveting on a range of topics, including the countryside, plant care, local government, motorcycle racing, health, and the futures we are in and face. Links to two obituaries appear below.
