Old meets Young

Yesterday I met Henry Bennet-Clark, a retired professor in Oxford.

Birgit with 6 years

Never got a pony, had to compensate.

He told me the story of fly song recording, beginning in the 1950s and ending with his last publication on fly song in 1995. That year I just turned six. On hearing this, Henry chuckled and said ‘sweet’.

After talking for two hours over lunch we got up. Me being two heads taller then him. He showed me were to put my tray and gave me a napkin. It was full of notes from an old scientist for a young one.

Thanks Henry, it was a pleasure.
