About this book

The story of a community of birding enthusiasts, of its characters, its rules, its equipment and its adventures.
`At last! An up-to-date examination of what makes birders tick. And about time too! Wonderfully written.' Bill Oddie
`Intensely readable, very funny and highly enlightening.' New Scientist

'At last! An up-to-date examination of what makes birders tick. And about time too! Wonderfully written' Bill Oddie; 'With a mixture of well-chosen anecdotes and self-deprecating humour, Cocker succeeds in making even the most hardened cynic appreciate his passion. Birders is a stylish work in a long tradition of fine writing on the subject' Guardian
