This book, published in 1976, owes much to the interest, almost an obsession, of the Nethersole-Thompson family. The two girls and four boys, as well as both parents, now work as a team in the wild and beautiful north-west Highlands... more...

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    "From mid-January to mid-April 1935 I was off on my dilapidated bicycle, but how different Speyside was from Breckland. In late February many crossbills were still in flocks; I had to walk and cycle for many miles before finding my first nest in the last week of March, when I located a small breeding group in a plantation of old pines close to... more...

  • Waders: their Breeding, Haunts and Watchersby Desmond Nethersole-Thompson; Maimie Nethersole-Thompson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

  • The Manx Shearwaterby Michael Brooke

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    The Manx Shearwater must rank amongst the world's most evocative seabirds. Whether it be seen slicing the wave tips of a stormy sea or uttering its weird strident cry in the night sky above a breeding colony, it has all the magic that a bird lover could wish for - and many of the characteristics that make seabirds of such interest to biologists.... more...

  • The Hen Harrierby Donald Watson

  • Man and Wildfowlby Janet Kear

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The involvement of humans with ducks, geese and swans has probably been closer than with any other group of birds, today and for several millenia past.

Dr Kear ranges widely, from a summary of... more...

  • The Natural History of Cape Clear Islandby J.T.R. Sharrock; Robert Gillmor

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    Cape Clear Island, the most southerly point of Ireland apart from the nearby Fastnet Rock, has been the site of a bird observatory since 1959. This account of the island, its flora and fauna, its inhabitants and history, is weighted in favour of the birds but this is, perhaps, inevitable since the island offers so much of exceptional ornithological... more...
