Synopsis: All about ospreys - best seller and widely acclaimed book by a top expert

Review: '...The book is stuffed full of photos and personal anecdotes, and it all makes for a highly readable account of one of our best-loved birds.' - Birds Illustrated 'So the book is part diary, part autobiography, part species account and part historical perspective. It is at all times fascinating and often very entertaining and we are also treated to excellent photographs and line drawings, maps and notes - a nicely considered mix... Its tale is a fascinating one entertainingly told by Roy Dennis. I guarantee anyone who even lightly dips their big toe into this book will learn something and I defy anyone to not find themselves immersing themselves in its rich storehouse and terrific gallery.' -Fatbirder '...his enthusiasm and single-mindedness and this exudes from him throughout this book. ...there are some outstanding pictures including ospreys taking fish and a close-up of an osprey's eyes that are so compelling. can almost feel that you are there taking in the same experiences.' - Highland News 'He writes with first-hand knowledge gained from a lifetime's experience of working with ospreys in the wild, punctuating the text with excerpts from his diaries, giving the book an added dimension. ... Everything one could ever wish to know about these birds seems to be covered in this book.' - John Muir Trust Journal
