The Wisdom of Birds: An Illustrated...
(Paperback)
Tim Birkhead
A superb piece of scientific popularization. As a leading ornithologist the author is committed to the importance of disciplined and testable scientific research on bird behaviour and ecology, but is also (and much more unusually) a real expert at conveying its significance and excitement to a large lay audience. The book is a very engaging and well-written blend of science, history and personal experience. His new book, Bird Sense, has all the same virtues.

The Barley Bird: Notes on a Suffolk...
(Hardback)
Richard Mabey; Derrick Greaves
A classic study by the doyen of nature writers, at once scholarly, entertaining and cheerfully opinionated. He explores the mystery of this drab, elusive bird, whose extraordinary song has captivated poets, princes and scientists alike, and tries to understand the meaning(s) it has had for us.

Flights of Fancy: Birds in Myth,...
(Paperback)
Peter Tate
A quietly thoughtful selection from the huge corpus of folklore about birds, focussing on the thirty of so species that seem most often to attract such traditions and so become carriers of symbolic meaning more generally for us.

Birds and Light: The Art of Lars Jonsson
(Hardback)
Lars Jonsson
His illustrations of birds in field guides have always had an unrivalled sense of animation, movement and characteristic jizz. This volume is a selection of his field sketches and watercolours which display his mastery in conveying fleeting impressions of moving subjects in changing light and weather conditions: instants of perception. There are also very intelligent diary notes and commentary.

The Natural History of Selborne
(Paperback)
Gilbert White; Richard Mabey
Orignally published in 1789, there are many editions, including this Penguin abridgement edited by Richard Mabey. White is the founding father of the 'nature diary' as a genre, who carefully chronicles the seasonal changes in his small parish in loving detail and so demonstrates that even the most parochial records can be of universal interest. The original ‘local patch’ worker.
