A careful reading of the only source, the Ibis obituary, (thanks to Sionk for providing the convenient link!) leaves one with the distinct impression that the impact of Simmons' ornithological work meets the notability criterion 1 for academics. The phrase "...one of his most cited papers" is indicative that "The person's research has made significant impact in their scholarly discipline...". Clearly, the article lacks corroborative sources, but it seems equally clear that these may be found in time. The single source is reliable and independent. I would therefore argue for the keeping of this particular article, should any question arise, rather than to allow for any merging, or deletion. David_FLXD(Talk) 21:53, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
"At Theale Old Gravel Pit over the summer of 1957, Ken Simmons, who was an esteemed authority on avian behaviour and the Great Crested Grebe..." (Yes, this is the same Ken Simmons) source is berksbirds
Simmons gets another mention here, accessed now, with reference to Robert Gillmor’s Birds, Blocks and Stamps; a review of this book appears in the July issue of IBIS, International Journal of Avian Science
