Overview

"Stephen Moss's collection of Guardian 'Birdwatch' columns forms a fascinating picture of one man's birding life: from early coot-watching as a young boy, through teenage cycle trips to Dungeness, to adult travels around the world as a TV producer working everywhere from the Gambia to Antarctica.

Drawing on nearly twenty years of columns for the Guardian, Stephen covers local, national and foreign birding encounters. From the (varying) excitement and peace of his chosen pursuit, to the growing uncertainties posed by climate change, the author brings an enthusiasm and sincerity to the subject that will energise even the most fair-weather of birdwatchers.

This elegant paperback edition features a truly beautiful cover linocut illustration by Robert Gillmor, the doyen of bird artists whose jackets grace all the illustrious Collins New Naturalist volumes.
