Still the best book available covering all of the worlds wildfowl in my opinion - and definitely a useful book for anyone who visits places where they have wildfowl collections.

I'll say. I've recently bought "Wildlife and Wilderness" by Keith Shackleton for 1.50 + postage. What a bargain!!!

If you don't know who Shackleton is, try Googling him for examples of his art. He's an artist who paints (amongst other things) birds as part of their environment rather than as identification aids, and produces stunning images of both in which each complements the other. Many years ago his work was featured in "Birds" magazine; I'll never forget his dynamic images of "Great Spotted Woodpeckers in an old apple orchard", and "Snowy Owl in the Arctic". For years I've looked for prints of those two paintings, with no success.
