Haunts of British Divers - RANKIN, Niall

Collins, 1947, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. Inscription inside.

In this book, the author has taken the unusual course of selecting three birds from two orders, the Podicipitiformes and Colymbiformes or diving-birds, and following them to their various breeding places in Britain. He draws an interesting comparison between the lives of three individual pairs which, though of similar build and habit, have chosen widely separated areas for their breeding and have totally different neighbours in consequence. In addition to the 82 photographs there are 11 pen-and-ink drawings and a frontispiece in colour by Margaret Myddleton.
