Description

“Bird Life at Home and Abroad” is a wonderful little volume full of anecdotes and observations related to bird watching across the globe. These musings and recollections are highly readable and interesting, and are not to be missed by fans of ornithology or nature writing. Contents include: “The Flamingo in France”, “Provence in Autumn”, “The Mere”, “The Shore”, “Hautes—Pyrénées”, “Basses—Pyrénées”, “In the Bay of Biscay”, “The Shetlands”, “Boxie Hill”, “The Cliffs”, “Moor and Loch”, “Holland”, “The Polder”, “Dune and Marsh”, “An Unattractive Bird-Haunt”, “An Unattractive Bird-Haunt”, etc. Thomas Coward (1867 – 1933) was an English ornithologist and amateur astronomer. He wrote on natural history, local history and Cheshire for a number of publications and books. Other notable works by this author include: “The Vertebrate Fauna of Cheshire and Liverpool Bay” (1910), “The Migration of Birds” (1912), and “Bird Haunts and Nature Memories” (1922). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction and biography of the author.
