About this book
Guardian & Observer reviews
Unlike any other bird book, and not an identification guide, this handsome cultural study of all the birds in Britain, is a magnificent achievement and a work of huge importance. An attempt to describe the interaction of birds and humans, it captures the essence of why birds matter.
This magnificent work of huge importance is the companion volume to "Flora Britannica". It covers cultural links, social history, ecology, the lore and language of birds including myths, art and literature, birdsong and rare facts, modern developments, migration and our sense of place. An attempt to describe the interaction of birds and humans, it captures the essence of why birds matter. Includes photos by the world famous bird photographer, Chris Gomersall.
