‘...one of the book’s pleasures for me is the way that Ian brings in vultures from all over the world. ... an easy book to dip into, or to read in long sittings. ... If you’ve enjoyed the magic of Extremadura yourself, this is a must. If you haven’t
it will make you want to go there immediately’. Bird Watching

‘Ian’s enthusiasm for this place, its varied wildlife and for vultures in particular leaps off the pages. ... a good writer who brings the scenes to life… reading his observations and thoughts, particularly about vultures, will reward your investment’. Mark Avery, Standing Up for Nature

‘...this book is a great read. ...above all it’s a text that is a love affair with birds, nature and wild places. ... This is among the very best because it really is beautifully written. ... Every paragraph painted a scene well enough for me to feel the sun’s heat on my back and the ubiquitous call of hoopoes’. FatBirder


...It is superbly produced and illustrated, and is a great showcase for Ken and Vic’s dedicated fieldwork... a real benchmark publication and key reference... The watercolours are a masterstroke and really round the book off beautifully. ... I cannot recommend the book highly enough... Chris Rollie, RSPB Ring Ouzel Plan Manager

...this is a beautifully illustrated book ... and peppered with superb watercolours. ... The well written prose is often full of observation so succinctly and poetically put across...  Any birder will enjoy this book, and anyone with a serious interest in Ring Ouzels will need to refer to it often. FatBirder

… this is a beautifully presented book, a treasure trove of knowledge and a great examination of Ring Ouzel ecology… BTO News

A brilliant book for not only bird watchers, but for wildlife and nature lovers too. Rebecca Hay, UK Travel and Features Writer

The Ring Ouzel is a high-quality ornithologist's book, as well as being a fascinating book for a reader with a generalist interest in birds. Alan Stewart, Wildlife Detective blog


'…is a fascinating book, demonstrating what community buy-outs can achieve. The chapters show the logical process and progress, and the book is illustrated with photographs, maps and explanatory text boxes on almost every page. The book and the habitat improvements are a credit to everyone involved'. Wildlife Detective

'…a comprehensive piece of work… to see the data and before and after pictures shows what a remarkable achievement this has been… This is an essential, heart-warming and positive read'. British Naturalist Association

'It should be called ‘Inspirational’, because reading it just fills you with fire... A must-read for all birders'. Bird Watching Magazine
