Synopsis: Passionate birdwatcher and conservationist Derek Moore has been an instrumental figure in British ornithology for more than half a century. Renowned as one of birding's best story-tellers, Derek takes a nostalgic journey through the past five or six decades, recounting many highly entertaining tales, from huge falls of migrant birds engulfing his cricket pitch in the 1960s to heated run-ins with land owners and developers during the years when he was instrumental in establishing a network of key nature reserves along the coast of East Anglia. During his lifetime Derek has seen a sea change in every aspect of birdwatching and conservation, and his hugely engaging style of writing will make this book a 'must have' for all birdwatchers and conservationists.

About the Author: Derek Moore OBE needs no introduction to birdwatchers, being a well-known writer, broadcaster and personality at events such as the British Birdwatching Fair, where he is famous for his amusing and entertaining talks. He has spent most of his life living near Beccles in Suffolk, but today lives near Llandeilo in south-west Wales.
