Provides a fascinating window onto British social and cultural history, and tells much about the changing relationship with the British landscape, people and society. In this book, Moss focuses on some of the most beloved and charismatic British birds. He explores their fascinating biology, and their place in the evolving culture and history of the British people. The author delves into the worlds of sebirds (Puffin, Sea eagle and Gannet), waterbirds (Kingfisher, Swan and Avocet), countryside birds (Red grouse, Nightingale and Skylark ) and town and garden birds (Robin, House sparrow and Magpie), weaving their stories together to tell four very different stories about the changing face of Britain.
