Media reviews

There aren't many veterinary textbooks you could happily take on holiday with you to read, but Birds of Prey - Health and Disease is just such a book. The book should be purchased by every practice seeing raptors. It should be in the library of everyone involved in wild bird rehabilitation, veterinary and non-veterinary. Veterinary Times, 2003
