About this book

A policeman's lot may not be a happy one, or so we are told, but here the author, a retired policeman, provides an 'arresting' and gripping account of his birding exploits with a band of like-minded chums going ábroad' in search of our rare and exotic feathered friends in order to fill their ever-growing bird lists. En route they encounter all kinds of problems and episodes, some of their own making, others due to the people and circumstances they meet. However, they try to master these with their friendship and humour... and a good supply of beer.

For Richard Pople, a former Detective Sergeant, birding was initially his childhood hobby but later became a passion and lastly, on retirement, a way of life.
