BIRD lovers are mourning the loss of a popular long-term RSPB member.

John Carter, 70, of Maxwell Road, Welling, passed away on June 26 from a blood vessel disease, having been an active member of Bexley RSPB for 20 years.

The keen cyclist had been in the printing industry and helped produce Hansard, then took early retirement and spent time helping with RSPB newsletters and conservation work.

He was also the treasurer of Woolwich and District Family History Society.

In 2005 the former Crofton Park pupil was diagnosed with vasculitis requiring him to make three visits to Guys hospital a week.

A service was held at Eltham Crematorium on July 8 for Mr Carter who leaves behind his widow, Eve, and children Suzie and Andrew.
