About the Author

Dr Mark Avery (@MarkAvery) is a blogger, writer, author and wildlife campaigner. He once, many moons ago, worked for the RSPB (and for 13 years was its Conservation Director). He has been prominent in the discussions over the future of driven grouse shooting in the UK - Mark hopes that its future is very limited. Keith Betton is a media trainer, PR consultant and writer. He is a keen world birder having seen over 8,000 species in more than 100 countries. Keith has a particular passion for Africa, having been Chairman of the African Bird Club for 7 years, and now its Vice President. In the UK he is heavily involved in bird monitoring in Hampshire, where he is County Recorder. He has been a Council Member of both the RSPB and the BTO, and is currently Vice President of the latter.

Reviews's a good entertaining read, and although it might be dismissed as a kind of ornithological Hello! magazine, there's enough serious stuff about the development of conservation organisations and changes in bird populations to give it a serious edge. -- Jeremy Brock * Scottish Birds *
Sceptical at first with the concept of these books, I was won over after reading the first few interviews. There is an essential honesty at work here - one that binds together these different generations of people. Overall we get a gentle insight into some of the birding characters we may have occasionally met or heard in the media or in person, across this small world of devotees. These two volumes are a bit of a field guide themselves. -- Barry Larking * ECOS *
Prepare to be entertained, educated but above all inspired. -- Justin Walker * BTO About Birds *
...the interviews constitute a surprisingly revealing and valuable record of the history of birdwatching, ornithology and conservation. -- Andy Stoddart * Rare Bird Alert *
