About this book

A biography of this remarkable Englishman, who was a key figure alongside General Allenby and T E Lawrence, but after retiring devoted the last forty years of his life to ornithology. Author of several classic works, including Birds of Arabia and Kenya Diary, this extraordinary man was always surrounded by controversy.
'a worthy tribute to a man who was arguably the most colourful and certainly the most controversial figure in 20th century British ornithology. Rod Martins, IBIS.
