Mark Avery Inglorious makes the case for banning driven grouse shooting. The facts and arguments are presented fairly but the author, Mark Avery, states from the start why he has, after many years of soul-searching, come down in favour of an outright ban. There is too much illegal killing of wildlife, such as Buzzards, Golden Eagles, and, most egregiously of all, Hen Harriers; and, as a land use, it wrecks the ecology of the hills. However, grouse shooting is economically important, and it is a great British tradition. All of these, and other points of view, are given fair and detailed treatment and analysis.

The Sacred Combe: A Search for Humanity’s Heartland Simon Barnes Simon Barnes is, without question, one of our finest natural history writers. The Sacred Combe is the story of his relationship with the great imagined special place, and with the real Valley, where he awoke on his first night in camp to find elephants consuming the roof of his hut as a light snack. It is about our abiding longing for a wilder, less civilised life, and about finding it, and living it. It is about every person’s relationship with the wild world, with all non-human life.

Murray has stitched together tales of the fish that was of central importance to the lives of our ancestors, noting how both it - and those involved in their capture - were celebrated in the art, literature, craft, music and folklore of life in northern Europe.

Nightingales in November: A Year in the Lives of Twelve British Birds Have you ever wondered what ‘our’ birds get up to when they're not pinching our peanuts, pilfering our pyracantha berries or nesting under the eaves of our homes? The One Show’s natural history star Mike Dilger tells us the answers in Nightingales in November which tells the very different personal and annual stories of twelve well-known birds we deign to call ‘British’. Through a lyrical narrative, the book showcases amazing avian facts gleaned over decades by birdwatchers, ringers, nest recorders and migration recorders.

On a Wing and a Prayer Sarah Woods Trying to encounter a harpy eagle in the wild, Sarah Woods trekked through the world’s densest jungles, falling under the spell of Latin America’s extraordinary wildlife and making some heart-wrenching discoveries about herself along the way.

Tales from Concrete Jungles

The Urban Birder

Bill Oddie Unplucked

David Lindo

Bill Oddie

David Lindo

Anyone can become an urban birder. This book is an inspirational look at the birdlife in our cities, or more accurately, the author’s personal journey of discovery involving racism, alcohol, music and of course, birds.

A compelling collection of Bill Oddie’s latest magazine columns, website blogs and general reflections. Bill Oddie has been the voice and face of birding broadcasting for more than three decades. In this new book, Bill has compiled and expanded a collection of his recent published musings about birds and birdwatching. Writing in his witty and inimitable style, Bill is sure to entertain and enthrall his many fans with this new book of thoughts and opinions on the world of natural history in Britain. The book is illustrated throughout with Bill’s charming and comic line drawings.

David Lindo is the Urban Birder. He has passionately promoted the virtues of birding in the urban environment at every opportunity, and especially through frequent articles in the birding press and on his appearances on television and radio. In his book, David visits some of the world’s most unnatural environments, revealing the astonishingly diverse range of wildlife that can be found when you take the time to look.

A Message from Martha

In Pursuit of Butterflies

Mark Avery

Matthew Oates

This book tells the tale of the Passenger Pigeon, of Martha, the last living individual, and of author Mark Avery's journey in search of them. It looks at how the species was a cornerstone of the now much-diminished ecology of the eastern United States, and how the species went from a population that numbered in the billions to nil in a terrifyingly brief period of time. It explores the untold story of the ecological annihilation of this part of America in the latter half of the 19th century.

Matthew Oates has led a butterflying life. Naturalist, conservationist and passionate lover of poetry, he has devoted himself to these exalted creatures: to their observation, to singing their praises, and to ensuring their survival. Based on fifty years of detailed diaries, In Pursuit of Butterflies is the chronicle of this life.

The Tyrannosaur Chronicles: The Biology of the Tyrant Dinosaurs David Hone

The Tyrannosaur Chronicles tracks the rise of these dinosaurs, and presents the latest research into their biology, showing off more than just their impressive statistics – tyrannosaurs had feathers, may have hunted in groups, and fought and even ate each other. This entertaining book presents the science behind this research, and tells the evolutionary story of the group though their anatomy, ecology and behaviour, exploring how they came to be one of the great icons of biology.

RSPB Spotlight: Eagles Mike Unwin

Badgers are elusive wanderers of the night, yet most of us live far closer to a Badger group than we might think. In Spotlight: Badgers James Lowen explores all aspects of their lives including their communal living, co-operative behaviour, feeding habits and the major threats and the conservation support for Badgers.

This highly readable study looks separately at both UK eagles, exploring how each is adapted as an apex predator in its own environment, and explores the relationship between the two. Separate chapters cover all aspects of the birds’ biology and lifestyle, from defending their vast territories to raising their young.

BIRDS: GENERAL

NEW

Nextinction Ralph Steadman and Ceri Levy The follow-up to the award-winning Extinct Boids, this book features more of the incredible art of cartoonist Ralph Steadman. This time the focus is not on the birds that are gone, but the ones that there's still time to save. Species such as the Giant Ibis, the Kakapo, the Sumatran Ground-cuckoo and the iconic Spoonbilled Sandpiper are included – these, along with a number of classic Steadman creations such as the Unsociable Lapwing, are the NEARLY-EXTINCT BOIDS.

Extinct Boids

Understanding Bird Behaviour

Extinct Birds

Ralph Steadman and Ceri Levy

Stephen Moss

Julian Hume and Michael Walters

‘Steadman gives us painting of the dodo, the great auk and other familiar lost species in burning, unforgettable colours. ...Ceri Levy anchors it all in sanity with an appealing running commentary’

The way birds behave is one of the vital keys to accurate identification and this book provides the experienced instruction needed to understand and get the most out of watching birds. The guide covers all the fundamental types of bird behaviour, including movement, feeding, breeding, migration, navigation, distribution, range, life and death, all of which are illustrated with beautiful photographs.

This is the first comprehensive review of the hundreds of bird species and subspecies that have become extinct over the last 1,000 years of habitat degradation, over-hunting and rat introduction. Covering both familiar icons of extinction as well as more obscure birds, this is a sumptuous reference and an amazing testament to humanity’s impact on birds over the last 1,000 years.

Birds new to science: 50 years of avian discoveries

The Wisdom of Birds

David Brewer

Tim Birkhead

Amazing as it might sound, ornithologists are still discovering, on average, five or six species of birds that are completely new to science each year. This book documents all of these remarkable discoveries made since 1960, from Barau’s Petrel onwards, covering around 250 species. It fills an important gap in the ornithological literature.

Helm County Avifaunas Helm County Avifaunas

Birds of London Andrew Self The parks, reservoirs, rooftops and gardens of London – here defined as the area within 20 miles of St Paul’s Cathedral – have a surprisingly rich avifauna, including a healthy population of one of Britain’s rarest breeders, the Black Redstart. The region also has a remarkable list of rarities – in recent years Canary Wharf has proven to be a magnet for vagrants, while one of the very few British records of Tengmalm’s Owl hails from Plaistow – an unfortunate bird stoned to death by local urchins in 1877. Some species, like the Peregrine Falcon, Black-headed Gull and Ring-necked Parakeet, have seen their fortunes soar over recent decades; others, such as House Sparrow, have suffered a population collapse. The status, distribution and history of every species on the regional list is discussed in rich detail in this book, the first comprehensive avifauna for the London area ever published.

An Illustrated Coastal Year: The seashore uncovered season by season

Nature uncovered month by month

Celia Lewis

Celia Lewis

Written and presented in the same style as 2013's popular An Illustrated Country Year, Celia Lewis’s beautiful new book covers the wildlife found on and around the seashore, above and under water.

‘A beautifully designed book celebrating the great outdoors’

Illustrated throughout with Celia’s gorgeous watercolours and linocuts, the book is broken up into seasons, with each featuring illustrations of flowers, insects, animals, fish, birds, shells and all sea-related species found at that time of year.

The Highlands can at times seem bleak and desolate, but they are also filled with secret wonders, from the ancient Caledonian pine forests to the vast Flow Country, and from the sheer granite cliffs of Handa to the mysterious depths of Loch Ness. With thoughtful, authoritative text accompanied by spectacular photography,Highlands: Scotland’s Wild Heart follows a year in the lives of a stellar cast of wild animals as they struggle to survive in this beautiful, yet unforgiving landscape – a land where only the toughest survive.

Nick Baker’s Bug Book

Nick Baker

We are all fascinated by, and often wary of, the tiny creatures that creep and crawl in our gardens or lurk in the dark corners or our homes, but how much do we really know about insects and their relatives? This book intends to encourage our understanding of various types of bugs that can be found in the back garden.

A guide to Britain’s wildlife through the seasons. It explains what is happening in nature in each month of the year, and provides helpful advice on finding a wide variety of wildlife – often in the most unexpected places.
