This is my next book, and we (it is a joint production with Keith Betton) have just gone through the proofs. It should be out in early June despite the publisher’s website saying August!
The book is a series of interviews with birders about how they got into birds, what birds mean to them, and in many cases, their professional involvement in birdwatching, ornithology, writing about birds and bird conservation.
Behind the Binoculars includes interviews with: Chris Packham, the late Phil Hollom, Stuart Winter, Lee Evans, Steve Gantlett, Mark Cocker, Ian Wallace, Andy Clements, Mike Clarke, Debbie Pain, Keith Betton, Roger Riddington, Ian Newton, Steph Tyler, Mark Avery, Stephen Moss, Alan Davies and Ruth Miller, Rebecca Nason and Robert Gillmor (who also provided the lovely cover).
You’ll be surprised at some of the things that our interviewees said, and some of the things that they have done.
