The very tragic death of a Next Generation Birder - CAMERON BESPOLKA

I am afraid there is again sad news that I know that some of you are just hearing with disbelief. The news services are reporting the tragic death on Tuesday of our Hoslist friend, 16 year-old Cameron Bespolka.

He was skiing with his family in Austria when both he and his father were swept 500 feet by an avalanche. His father is badly injured, but Cameron did not survive. The story is in many of the morning papers.

You may not have met Cameron, but I am sure you will have seen his posts on here. What a tragic loss. Cameron was a great birder and photographer, and although you may find it upsetting I do encourage you to take a look at his work – his blog is full of great photos.

For those of you who knew Cameron well, we share your loss.

With best wishes

Keith Betton
