Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This is the book about woodland birds I have been waiting for … Rob Fuller is to be congratulated on a new synthesis brimming with stimulating conclusions and ideas. This book should take its place … as part of the new generation of thinking about woodland ecology.' Colin Tubbs, Journal of Applied Ecology

' … thoroughly recommended for those already interested in birds and woods, as well as for those taking their first steps through the trees with their binoculars.' Biologist

'The book is profusely illustrated throughout, and Chris Rose's carefully chosen and evocative line drawings are a delight. For anyone interested in the bird life of wooded habitats - whether one's primary interest is the wood or its birds - this book is a gold-mine of information and a source of many fascinating questions still to ponder.' Quarterly Journal of Forestry

'This book is a good and informative read for anyone interested in birds, or woods, or in the British landscape in general ...' Trends in Ecology and Evolution

'This clearly written book gives a thorough overview of the ecology of woodland birds and includes summaries of the excellent research the author has done in over two decades of work for the British Trust for Ornithology.' Martin Warren, Butterfly Conservation

'Highly instructive account of birds in trees and scrub, with glimpses of the ancient greenwood; excellent example of how survey information can be woven into real natural history.' Bird Watching

'Rob Fuller writes with affection and knowledge about woods and their birds … Settling down in front of a log fire with this book would provide a good few evenings of pleasure and plenty of food for thought.' Mark Avery, Ibis
