Mauritius: Authors, 2016. Quarto, dustwrapper, colour photographs.
Highly accomplished bird photographer Narainsamy Ramen teams up with Adrian Skerrett, author of many Seychelles books. Together they have produced a grand celebration of the birds of these islands.
All sixty-species that breed in Seychelles are illustrated in a wonderful Series of colour photographs together with further twenty-six regular visitors. In addition a flavour is given of the many vagrant species from Europe, Asia, Africa and even Antarctica that have been sporadically recorded at these shores by Seychelles Bird Records Committee. There is a checklist of every species ever recorded in Seychelles and even a dedication to the six native species that have sadly been lost since the human occupation of this island nation.
