Birds and People: Resolving the conflict on estuaries
Birds and People: Resolving the conflict on estuaries
Price: £3.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and informative, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a "must read" for a wide audience. Students thinking of pursuing a career in environmental science will find out exactly what is involved. Interested amateurs will find out how their input is valued - but why scientists pursue the evidence not their hearts! And policy makers will get a valuable insight into the way evidence is gathered and used in science, and the mind set of career scientists. At the same time there is acknowledgement and sympathy for policy makers trying to use scientific evidence in decision making - something that many scientists would do well to note.

Dr Goss-Custard was a very well respected senior scientist with the Natural Environment Research Council. He led a team that was held in very high regard, and his leadership and mentoring qualities, and the way in which he valued his colleagues comes through very well, and also gives a very good picture of how scientists cannot operate in isolation.

Thankfully, this book is also very well written and it is easy to be carried along by the 'story'. If I have any criticism, it is that the e- book isn't always formatted in the best way for a handheld reader. But this does not detract from the overall book.

Altogether well worth reading!

The writing in this book is so good you can almost smell the Northern Australian outback and you feel that you know the characters personally. Add to that an excellent who- dunnit plot and this really is a brilliant book. Highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite for the men in our family, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for both my Dad & my Husband a while ago as a 'stocking filler' present and now find that they like it so much I have to keep buying it for them. Apparently it is a great shaving soap, and isn't drying to the skin, and leaves just a hint of a fresh scent afterwards that is subtle enough not to scream 'man perfume'.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite enchanting!, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This simple little book is lovely on several levels - the photo sequence is great on its own. But the text also adds to it and will engage adults and children alike in thinking about how birds feed their chicks in the nest. For those wanting to teach children a little more about animal behaviour and competition in the nest this would also be a great start.

I bought this for my Dad as a "little extra" for his birthday. He seems to be really enjoying it. Arrived in 5 days and is very good value for the fun it provides.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last- something genuinely helpful!, 17 July 2012
If, like me, you've read the books, done the courses, yawned, & changed nothing, then this is the book that we have all been waiting for! It is well written & very readable for starters, which immediately puts it above about 75% of other life management type books. And this one recognises that we are all human, with lives that pull us 10 ways at once, and a need to occasionally just chill out & be lazy. It doesn't try to change the reader, just offers new ways of thinking, and that is what leads to the "Getting things done". I genuinely think this book is actually helping me get to grips with a very crazy & stressful work/ life imbalance. Well worth buying, and with the added feel good factor of some of the money going to charity.

5.0 out of 5 stars They actually work!, 5 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very cynical when I ordered these, and truthfully ordered them simply for their novelty value. But they do actually work! The teflon coated bags hold the sandwich well, there is no leakage into the toaster (even with runny cheese!), and the toasted sandwich slides out easily afterwards. They come with little "Wallace" and "Gromit" things that you can press into the bread to leave a bit of an image in the toast afterwards - these aren't very effective on toast, but would be useful I should imagine on biscuits fresh out of the oven if you want to impress an image on home baking. You may need to adjust your toaster setting slightly, so keep an eye on the sandwich when using for the first time, but basically these are brilliant and much cheaper than buying a separate sandwich toaster!

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked fragrance that is wonderful, 5 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cabotine has been around for years, and without the media hype attending the likes of Chanel no 5. is often overlooked now. This is totally undeserved! It is an inexpensive perfume with the longevity on the skin, and a bright grassy freshness that celebrity endorsed perfumes charge 3 times more for. The body lotion is hard to find, but is great for when you just want a hint of perfume that lasts all day - and it makes your skin feel nice as well! Never write this perfume off simply because it has been around for a while. And if you like a fresh perfume, that isn't overpoweringly floral, but somehow hints of summer, then give this one a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this hand cream, 3 Nov 2009
Really impressed with this hand cream and have ordered it again. Don't need a lot and it really leaves my hands feeling softened. As I am out in all weathers it takes quite a lot to impress me in hand creams. Highly recommended.
