With a foreword by naturalist (and kingfisher fan) Nick Baker, this is a must have book for budding birders and friends of wildlife.
"First they assault your ears with that sharp piping call, then next up your eyes get
pummelled by a startling neon streak, shooting past fast and close to the water. It’s a
small bird which leaves a big impression." From the foreword of Nick Baker, Conservationist, wildlife expert and TV presenter
