  • Gulls: A Guide to Identification42% OFF
    Gulls: A Guide to Identification by P J Grant

    Until recently gulls were widely regarded as a difficult group and identification and ageing was often inaccurate or uncertain. This was largely due to the complexities of immature plumages, which of necessity were generally unrepresented in standard field guides. Birdwatchers need no longer be deterred or confounded by that deficiency. This revised second edition book offers them the opportunity to advance their skill in field identification by accepting the challenge rather than shrinking from the difficulties.

    Most people who have taken a biology course in the past 50 years are familiar with the work of David Lack, but few remember his name. Almost all general biology texts produced during that period have a figure showing the beak size differences among the finches of the Galapagos Islands from Lack's 1947 classic, Darwin's Finches. Lack's pioneering conclusions in Darwin's Finches mark the beginning of a new scientific discipline, evolutionary ecology. Tim Birkhead, in his acclaimed book, The Wisdom of Birds, calls Lack the 'hero of modern ornithology.' Who was this influential, yet relatively unknown man?

    Grey Daggers and Minotaurs in Greenwich… by John F Burton

    This evocative book is based on the illustrated Natural History diaries that the author, John F. Burton, began writing in 1942 and has maintained ever since. It is the story of how one young South East London boy, amidst the war-time experience of the Battle of Britain and the onslaught of the Blitz and the V1 and V2 attacks on London, developed his nascent interest and fascination with birds, butterflies, beetles and other British wildlife species into a post-war professional life dedicated to ornithology and natural history. Many of his diary entries with accompanying drawings and photographs are reproduced in the book, and recall with immediacy and freshness his memories of those now-distant days and field trips. Although the 1940s are long gone this ageless book will pique the interest of all generations fascinated by wildlife. Illustration type: B/W illustrations, B/W photographs, 436pp. 2014
