Although quite slim this book contains an interesting collection of thoughts and comments relating to the shared life of the author and Harry, a herring gull. It tracks the life of Harry and his mate, Mrs. H, and their interaction with the author and contains some beautiful and unusual photos (in colour) of their life together in a most beautiful part of Scotland.
I didn't set out to specifically learn about the herring gull but found myself doing so without effort due to the authors explanation of Harry and Mrs. H's life together. I'm not sure if the subject will ever some up in a quiz, but I'll be ready with the answers if it does!
An interesting and enjoyable book that I can highly recommend.
