Factual, fascinating and frightening, 15 Feb 2013
Compelling reading for anyone who has a concern about the future of life on earth. Not being a bird watcher, I haven't followed the specific loses of birds but to me the general disappearance of our wildlife has been unmissable. This book very gently relieves the current health of nature, not only in the UK but across the interconnected world. Using birds as a barometer it suggests realistic changes to come; offering possible reasons for declines, highlighting hurdles for improvements; yet, rightfully, never losing a sense of hope.
