Laraman fits the second part of the clue, but his first name is Aaron ?

Yes, Brian Can(')t of Play Away

La = the French

Red head = r

A = adult (standard cryptic bits and pieces filler)

Well done

Some thoughts....

Bird.....Martin, Robin

Keen....avid (thought first name might be David, but Bird = D??)....or could be somebody Keen like Steve, Roy (as it's 'we hear' the spelling of Keane can be homophonic)

Walker...could be synonym like Hiker or somebody Walker, Scott, Clive, John etc

Begin disappearing.....d

You're not too far away TC.

Need a different bird (don't we all) and on the right lines with keen walker but need to think more laterally.

Thought it might be that 'mean diary' + g (initial letter of goes) might be the fodder, scrambled via 'wrong'

However I can't make a plausible surname from Ian, Gary, Adam, Adrian etc so I may be going about it the wrong way,...
