About this book

With a foreword by Chris Packham.

Do you have a passion for wildlife, and do you enjoy watching birds? Are you also hopeless at identifying some of the more difficult ones? Do you feel lost without a field guide, and can you count on both hands the number of birds that you can identify by their calls alone?

If the answer to these questions is 'yes' you are not alone. In Winging it - Birding for low-flyers, Andrew Fallan recounts the highs and the lows, the trials and tribulations, of being an avid birder in a world seemingly populated by experts and high-flyers. All those with an interest in birds and other wildlife will identify with and enjoy these engaging tales. Hence, they are invited to join an often humorous and irreverent journey around the UK: from the heavily industrialised Thames estuary to Minsmere and the north Norfolk coast, from the Scilly Isles to the majestic scenery of Wales, all the way in fact to the rocky grandeur of the highlands and islands of Scotland. Against the backdrop of our green and pleasant land, the author examines - through his own experiences - the often spectacular beauty of our wildlife, and encourages us to seek solace in the simple enjoyment of birds.

Biography

This is Andrew Fallan's first book. Already as a child he was a keen birdwatcher, growing up in south-east Essex, and going on bike trips with his brother. This hobby remains strong despite many of life's diversions and when he eventually meets his true love `Panda', she joined him on many a fantastic birding trip around the green and pleasant British countryside.
