I’ve got a lovely certificate to hang on the office wall: Inglorious was the second choice in the BB/BTO Best Bird Book of the Year for 2015. Woohoo!
I notice that the judges say ‘Not all will agree with the conclusion…’, although my thought is ‘give it time and they will!’, but I was, of course delighted to note that they went on ‘…but few will fail to be impressed with the lucidity and erudition of the case being made.’. I’m sure the Moorland Association are impressed beyond expression by Inglorious!
Coming second to one of my favourite books of the year makes it even better. Congratulations to Prof Nick Davies FRS for winning this title with Cuckoo – cheating by nature. Now that really is a place to find lucidity and erudition.
The third, fourth and fifth books in the list have all been reviewed here too – but you should find out what they were by subscribing to BB.
