Crows and Cocker, 25 May 2013
So eloquently put by another reviewer below, this is not a book of study of crows alone it is also the study of a man who studies Crows and nature and the countryside, his description of tumbling down through the undergrowth to get to the rookery is truly adventurous and I loved this book. A Story of a man's passion for investigating and detailing what we take for granted.
"All birders will identify with Mr Cocker and his descriptions of trips out at dusk in winter, the light and conditions you only seem to get at that time of year, and the simple pleasure of watching the natural world unfold. I think there is much in here for anyone though who appreciates the British landscape and the creatures we share it with.
Since reading this lovely book I have been out and watched two rook and jackdaw spectacles of my own and been just mesmerised."
