Riassunto: In "Birdscape", and the Channel 4 TV series it accompanies, the author has taken six of Britain's prime birdwatching areas, and arguably some of the most beautiful areas, and looked at the birds that they contain: the cliff-top peregrines of Cornwall, the oakwoods of Wales and their precious red kites; the wildfowl of the Ouse Washes; the divers of the Scottish Flow Country; the owls of the north Norfolk marshes; and the nocturnal nightjars of the Dorset heaths. The combination of a painter and a naturalist provides a fresh view of these birds. This is not only a book about the birds of Britain. It is also a book about the countryside as a whole, including the flowers and the people who share it with the birds including plants, such as the heathers that now adorn the Dorset heaths, are threatened by on all sides of housing estates. The late Josh Scott, who used to be a wildfowler until Peter Scott managed to persuade him into becoming the first warden on the Ouse Washes, or David Treleaven, who has seen the fall and rise of his beloved Cornish peregrines and now organizes peregrine counts on New Years Day armed only with warm soup are included. Every chapter is fully illustrated and they are filled with personal encounters with plants, animals and man to bring the full splendour of the British scenery to life. Published to coincide with the 6-part television series of the same name, "Birdscape" is a graphic guide to some of the best wildlife sites in the UK.
