#InlandWaters - Tributes have been paid to veteran naturalist and broadcaster Dick Warner, who died today (Friday 16 June) after taking ill on a boat on the Shannon, as The Irish Times reports.

Warner was best known for his landmark 1990s RTÉ documentary series Waterways, which returned for a six-part special on the Royal Canal in the autumn of 2011.

But the expert on Ireland’s coastal and inland waters, described on social media as “Ireland’s greatest waterman”, is credited with more than 90 TV documentaries in his career — including the Voyage series in 1999.

The Irish Times has more on tributes to Warner here.
