Happy Birthday Sir David

Today is Sir David Attenborough's 90th birthday so we'd like to wish him many happy returns and thank him for his services to natural history.

What do you give the man who has everything? You name a plant after him! Tim Rich has already done this (see image on right) and here is his birthday message to the great man:

"Happy 90th birthday Sir David Attenborough. I named Attenborough’s Hawkweed in his honour after he inspired me to study ecology when I was 17. He has also been an inspiration to many others around the world. Long may he continue!"

And so say all of us!
