About this Item

8vo., 352pp., illustrated by Keith Brockie, 32 b/w photographs, 85 figures and 77 tables to text, orig. cloth gilt. A fine copy in a fine pictorial dustwrapper. From the library of C. Douglas Deane with his neat printed label to corner of upper pastedown. (Mr C.Douglas Deane was the Deputy Director and the Keeper of Natural Science in the Ulster Museum in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He served in the Royal Air Force during the war. He also was a member of various Government committees and other organisations relating to the natural history of Ulster and wrote regular articles in the Irish Times, Belfast Telegraph and the Belfast News Letter (Deane, 1983). He joined the staff of the Museum and retired after almost forty-five years. He specialised in birds and mammals of Ireland. He was a founder member of the Ulster Society for the Protection of Birds (later RSPB) and had a keen interest in the local history and naturalists. He received an honoury degree of Master of Science from the Queen's University of Belfast in 1974. He retired in 1977 and was presented with an O.B.E. on the Her Majesty's visit to Northern Ireland). The author studied the Kestrel for several years in Scottish hill country and sheepwalk, then in two agricultural areas of eastern England, but his book also includes much valuable observation and data from Europe and elsewhere. Its twenty-one chapters cover all aspects of the Kestrel's life cycle, with especial emphasis on breeding performance, population densities and turnover, and age and sex ratios .A section of over seventy tables of supporting data concludes the book.
