As we’ve reported in the past, thanks to the generosity (& imagination!) of a Land Library supporter, a few times a year we receive a battered, but not bruised, shipment of books from an English bookseller. These books have added such an exciting depth and diversity to the Land Library’s shelves!
As we unpacked the most recent shipment, we were especially impressed by the latest crop of British bird books. For sheer visual impact, it’s hard to match Charlie Hamilton James’ Kingfisher: Tales from the Halcyon River (pictured above). We’ll never look at the kingfishers along Denver’s streams in the same way! (Charlie Hamilton James has also teamed up with Philippa Forrester in a follow-up book, Halcyon River Diaries, an in-depth look at the wildlife of a typical English stream).
And here’s a few more unique titles from our Brilliant Box of British Bird Books!
A Single Swallow: Following an Epic Journey from South Africa to South Wales by Horatio Clare, While Flocks Last: An Armchair Birdwatcher Goes in Search of Our Most Endangered Species by Charlie Elder, Bird Migration by Ian Newton, A Sky Full of Starlings by Stephen Moss, This Birding Life by Stephen Moss
