With very best wishes to the many regular contributers to the taxonomy forums! :t:

First the BOU Records Committee, now Richard Klim, where will it end?
Many thanks Richard for the thousands of postings over the year, you were a great source of information and will be sorely missed. I do hope the departure is not illness related, and all the best.

Thanks for the kind thoughts.

I've been largely deskbound, struggling with cancer since Jul 2014 (with various surgical procedures, chemotherapy, radiotherapy) and BF has provided a wonderful way for me to remain engaged with ornithology throughout.

However, in recent days it's become clear that my basic faculties are no longer up to it, with even the simplest posts requiring several attempts before success.

But I'll certainly continue to lurk with undiminished interest for as long as physically possible... ;)

Thanks Richard. Always a voice of reason and moderation. I hope your lurking proves entertaining.

That's incredibly sad to read, Richard. You have put an extraordinary amount of time and effort into the taxonomy forum, and of course we mostly just took it all for granted. Many thanks for all your posts, and I'm sure we all forgive you for some of the more dreadful puns on the site!

All the best.

My thanks too.

I tend to be a lurker myself, and your contributions on this subforum are one of the main reasons I use Birdforum.

You will be missed indeed, probably by many more than you may realise.

The PMs and posts I shared with you and my appreciation of your considered and thought-provoking views comprise a highlight in my eighth decade, and for that I feel enriched. Thank you.

PS Loved your bad puns - almost as dreadful as mine!
