About this book

The main aim of Those with Webbed Feet is to introduce waterfowl to novice waterfowl enthusiasts, both young and old. That said, the book is equally appealing to anybody with a new interest in these birds. Besides the fundamental information to understand and identify each family member, the book's characterful and animated style is complemented by lots of ‘Fun Facts’, quiz questions and hand-drawn illustrations.

Introduction and overview of the family structure are followed by over 100 pages of detailed information of 34 species of swans, geese and ducks, including their appearance, habitat, behaviour, locations and the best time of year to see them, as well as their population and conservation status. Edward further lists the work by various charities, especially the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT), of conservation and protection of birds, places to visit, important wetlands around the world, and finally gives advice on how to start your own waterfowl collection.

Biography

Edward Giles has ever been excited about anything feathered, living on water and with Webbed feet. At the age of thirteen, Edward was lucky enough to start his own collection of waterfowl at his home in Shropshire. Six years later, after graduating from university, he planned to write a hook to enthuse and encourage others of the same age to start to enjoy wildlife, such as birds, and especially waterfowl. Early on he would seek
advice and help from WWT and later, in return, would run marathons in aid of WWT’s various projects.
