For the last few years, Elizabeth has been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She finally died in August 2018. I shall try to carry on with this diary in 2019, but although I now have more time to give to it, I find it increasingly difficult to do, so wish me luck. Although Elizabeth didn't get much involved with the technical stuff, she helped me keep the records, created story lines and her enthusiasm kept me up to the mark!

I am sad to read that. My condolences to Malcolm and his family. I wish You luck and health. This has been a nice forum and I have got good friends and memories from here.

Since the spring 2016 -around the times of Strixaluco's last posts- we have had Strix uralensis (ural owl) breeding in our garden (http://forum.biggonline.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=67189#67189). The female is named after Elizabeth.

That's a very nice memorial to her. She would have been chuffed!

If I may I'd like to add to this thread. So sad to hear about Elizabeth. My condolences to you Malcolm and your family.
Thank you Malcolm for starting the forum and keeping it going for so long. It has I'm sure given pleasure and knowledge to many of us.
I love the story of the owl Karwin.
