Ivory-billed Oddie by EarthHart Ivory-billed Oddie by EarthHart
This is Bill Oddie, friend & Wildlife TV Presenter, wearing one of our wildlife applique sweatshirts. The design is of an Ivory-billed Woodpecker Campephilus principalis. At the time I designed it, it was thought to be Extinct, so the red badge with EXTINCT on it.
Bill wore the shirt to the Annual Dinner of the International Council for Bird Preservation (ICBP). There, he found out that two had been seen on Cuba. He phone me the following morning, to tell me this & that ICBP wanted a shirt ExL, which we made.
We found out later, it had been given to President Castro.

This is a scanned print, photo taken in Bill's house, in 1986

Shame I haven't got a photo of Castro wearing it, but then again, you win some, you loose some.

wow wow wow Will !! Good for you my friend. Bill Oddie has always been one of my favourite presenters, especially after they did the Springwatch from Shetland a few years back.
