Dotterel Days by Colin Richards

(c) C. Richards
Colin Richards who is a very familiar name in the local birdwatching scene, and further afield, has recently completed a book on Dotterels. A bird many of us will have shared unforgettable moments with in remote locations. I'm looking forward to seeing the book which Colin hopes to have available for the forthcoming W.O.S. conference. I've included a passage from the introduction below.

"The high tops are very special. For the naturalist it is a chance to be mysteriously transported 2500 kilometres to the north and experience wild, virtually Arctic conditions where man's influence is not easily visible. The mountain tops can be dangerous, with snow storms any time of the year, when one feels insignificant and vulnerable to the elements. Yet at other times, under clear blue skies, it is a magical world with breathtaking views in all directions and perhaps, a Dotterel nearby!"

Please follow the link below where further details can be found on how to acquire the book, with a foreword by Iolo Williams.
