BIRDS IN A VILLAGE - A CENTURY ON by Brian Clews

 

A century ago, the well-known naturalist W H Hudson came to stay in Cookham to study birds in a rural setting, and subsequently wrote ĎBirds in a Villageí (still some left).

He wrote about birds on The Moor and The Commons, Quarry Woods, the old orchards and places along our local streams.

 

His fascinating account seems never to have been updated so, some 100 years later, Cookham resident Brian Clews reproduces his chapters, responding to each with details of the changes in bird life that have occurred since Hudsonís visit.

 

Fully illustrated with local images, 130 pages, and hard-covered, the book reminds us how the village was all that time ago and indicates the affect of change to our familiar, and scarcer bird species. The new book is now available at £14.50, but with a special price of £12.00 for residents.

 

A donation from proceeds will be made to Elizabeth House. Contact Brian Clews to place orders"
