If you thought you knew all about seabirds think again. This book is packed with new information. Why I hear you ask? Well it is the modern scientific innovations that have suddenly meant ‘we know where you are going’ in the seabird world. Not just where but how deep and what temperature is your stomach! The new information goes on and on with some great sea bird sketches by Bruce Pearson. Yes there are a few maps and colour pictures but the book is certainly about learning what our sea birds are doing and this information will go a long way in helping to save them. I wish Xmas was a bit closer!
