From the cover: “Britain’s coasts and estuaries can boast an enviable diversity of bird life. There are few better places for the bird-watcher to spend some time. In this, his second, book Terence Lambert presents us with a gallery of portraits of the birds that can be seen wherever sea and land meet. He paints with a sure hand. Whether he is portraying a scavenging gull, a predatory skua making off with a young fledgling, a peregrine imperiously tearing at its prey, or a graceful tern returning to its mate on the nest, the birds are painted with the same superb accuracy of detail, and the same evocative power, that distinguished his earlier work. To study these paintings is to take a journey to our coast. They conjure up the sounds and smells of the sea, and the calls of birds across the bare desolation of the mudflats.
When Lambert’s Birds of Garden and Woodland was first published, Terence Lambert was acclaimed as a young artist of great promise. In his new book, that promise is amply fulfilled. Terence Lambert can now join the ranks of the best of the world’s bird-painters. This is a book to treasure; a delight to the eye.”
