We have just received the very sad news of the death of Jim Mart. Jim donated to Ogston Bird Club the land now known as Jim Mart’s Nature Reserve, he also paid all the conveyance costs to transfer the land to Ogston Bird Club.
Many of you will recall meeting him at the official opening when he was made a life member. He was delighted in the way the land was developed into a nature reserve, particularly the ponds and hedges. He often recalled to me stories of how he used to swim in the stream above the weir. He will be sadly missed.
As soon as we have details of the funeral arrangements we will put them on the website.
