Blokes and Birds is a humorous, one-of-akind look at 40 British and Irish birders and their wild escapades in the pursuit of their 'art'. It's a quirky look at the personalities and the passions hidden behind the twitching beards, binoculars and birding paraphernalia. Readers will delight in madcap tales of trips taken over a 1,000 miles to see birds that have flown, a doctor's tale of a bird landing on his dining table along with the roast beef, and intrepid birders' brave battles with hail, mud, fences, lighthouses, foreign militia and more. The fascinating story told by each bloke of his most bizarre or strange birding experience is accompanied by candid photographs of each birder at his best.
