The Birdman Abroad

Published by New Holland

Stuart Winter's "Tales of a Tabloid Twitcher" earned many plaudits in 2010, as the birder journalist who brought the subjects of birdwatching and conservation to millions of red-top readers over a period of more than a decade shared some of his most captivating scoops.

This second instalment of tales follows a similar format and features stories from around the world. There are 20 or so chapters, each covering a range of dynamic tales: stories of sin and scandal are mixed with serious messages about bird conservation and the environment. A series of witty line drawings complements and enhances the stories.
