We pay tribute to Dick Warner, one of Ireland's foremost naturalists, who died on Friday, June 16th. In addition to his acclaimed television work (including Waterways), Dick was also a mentor to many of the Mooney Goes Wild team. President Michael D. Higgins lead the tributes, saying Dick was "a dedicated environmentalist as well as a wonderful filmmaker, and his beautiful work on the canals of Ireland was outstanding". Tonight, we'll enjoy Dick's RTÉ Radio 1 documentary Swansong Of A Toad, as some of the Mooney Goes Wild regular contributors bring us their memories of working alongside Dick...
