William Condry (1946-1998) was a naturalist and writer, synonymous with Wales. Deeply committed to conservation, he was part of the early efforts to preserve the Red Kite. Probably most widely known for his nature diaries, he contributed regularly to The Guardian's Country Diary between 1957 and 1998. His first book was a biography of Thoreau (1954) and his Welsh Country Essays (1996) is a classic tribute to the beauty of the Welsh landscape.
