Behind the Binoculars is published by Pelagic.
Keith Betton and I interviewed twenty birders and asked them how they got into birds, what birds mean to them, and about 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.
