'... this book is such a vivid and lovely guide. ...I do not see how it could be bettered.'
Foreward by Sir David Attenborough
Sir Peter Scott achieved international acclaim both as an artist and a conservationist, and his depictions of wildfowl, especially, remain well-known and sought after - many years after his death.
The new edition of one of his most-loved books features Sir Peter's classic illustrations plus a comprehensively-updated taxonomy and detailed list of distribution, breeding and wintering locations, and migration habits.
Every species of wildfowl is included, along with a key to identification by size, shape, colour, voice, behaviour, bill shape and bill colour.
