About this book

Jonathan Couch (1789-1870) of Polperro was Cornwall's foremost naturalist in the C19; his importance has been compared to that of Gilbert White. This book draws on his hitherto unpublished study of Cornish birds begun in 1821 and his Journal of Natural History. This extensively illustrated book will delight ornithologists and Cornish historians alike.

Excellent... I have a feeling this book will be selling out fast. Western Morning News "A fascinating insight into the methods of birdwatching in the 19th century." Cornish World
