... makes great bedside reading. An addictive and highly enjoyable book. --Stuart Winter, Birdwatching, 2005

Here is a classic tale, set amidst the beautiful British countryside, involving a rivalry so strong that all else is forgotten - save the birds and the desire to see them, despite the many costs both mentally and physically. The second revised edition (Arrivals and Rivals - A duel for the winning bird, ISBN-13: 978-0954334796) has a stunning new cover, more colour photos and an extra chapter on how to prepare for such adventures.
