About this book

Chris Feare is an ecologist whose career has been devoted to research on birds that interact with man's interests in the form of conservation problems or in posing threats to man's livelihoods and safety. He first visited Seychelles in 1971, living there for two years to undertake research on Sooty Terns and the effects of commercial harvesting of their eggs. This led to a lifelong interest in Sooty Terns and other seabirds, and to his enduring love of the islands. For over 40 years he has travelled widely in Seychelles and witnessed remarkable changes, affecting both birds and humans.

The aim of Orange Omelettes & Dusky Wanderers is to describe these in the hope that they will interest Seychellois, tourists and visiting scientists alike, and also to inform his family and friends why he regularly forsakes Britain for the verdant mountains, white coral sands, crystal clear blue ocean and tropical warmth of this beautiful corner of the Indian Ocean.

Media reviews

"[...] this book [...] is essentially a self-published autobiographical account of Feare’s long association with the Seychelles and Sooty Terns. [...] While an interesting read for those long familiar with Indian Ocean islands, it is frustrating that the book has neither index nor references, an unexpected omission for a lifelong scientific writer [...] It is unclear who the target audience is for this book, which is in many ways an uncomfortable mix of (unreferenced) scientific discourse and personal experiences. [...]"
