Pete Piringer

I'd been passing this chap on his bike on my way to work for quite a while now, but with the dark mornings and the fact he was well wrapped up against the elements, I wasn't sure? Well this morning I finally found out that it was indeed Pete Piringer! Many Yorkshire Birders will know Pete and I have known him since the early 90's and it was great to see him again and chat if only briefly. Pete keeps himself to himself but is an excellent Birder with a great love of the LDV. I remember standing with him by the caravan park at Spurn when he picked up the CLIFF SWALLOW (23/10/95) flying down Beacon Lane. Oh happy day!!! Take care my friend..
