Product description

Review

"A delightful ode to the wild world outside the kitchen window - leaves you with the warm feeling that a shared love conquers all" - Will Cohu, Daily Telegraph "A witty, perceptive book, thoughtful, instructive and full of simple wisdom." Daily Mail "How to be a bad birdwatcher is a work of pure enthusiasm for the cause of birds and us. Unstuffy, democratically, it tries to help us derive good from things near at hand, everywhere, and it succeeds." The Spectator "An amiable mix of memoir, the merits of binoculars, Charles Darwin, laughing gulls and how watching birds compares with his day job of watching England footballers." The Observer
