About this book

BB Osmaston was a leading field ornithologist in India for 30 years. These diaries describe his life as a professional forester in the forests of India, Burma, Sikkim and the Andaman Islands a century ago. Besides hair-raising encounters with wild elephants and man-eating tigers, he gives detailed observations of over 200 bird species, some very rare.
