‘It is, in essence, an absorbing detective-style exploration of how so many pubs up and down Great Britain have come to be named after no fewer than 117 bird species - often with signage to match. This is a superb book, either for browsing or to be read from cover to cover.’ Amazon four-star review

‘In his extensive survey, which includes several Lincolnshire hostelries, his narrative bubbles along like a fast-moving brook. It is endlessly informative and peppered throughout with wry humour. Lavishly illustrated.’ The Heron




‘…beautiful book… …informative as well as insightful…’ Our Man On The Ground Travel and Lifestyle

 ‘… is a scholarly, highly detailed book… …provides  an  excellent  contribution to the maritime history literature providing primary source data concerning the role and difficulties of foreign blockade runners during the American Civil War’. The Northern Mariner, the journal of the Canadian Nautical Research Society and the North American Society for Oceanic History
