John Zehetmayr - 1922 - 2009

John Zehetmayr was a regular collaborator with Mary Gillham, leading walks together and sharing wildlife notes. John Zehetmayr's name is mentioned countless times in Mary's archive - although, sadly, we only have this one photo of him.

John was an excellent and reknowned forester as well as an excellent naturalist. He was passionate about butterflies and moths and his 30 years as warden of the Lavernock Point nature reserve enabled him to create an excellent record of the species which appeared during that time.
