It may come as a surprise to some people, but tabloid newspaper coverage of the ornithological world does actually extend beyond cheap innuendos about tits and shags. For this we can thank one journalist more than any other - Stuart Winter. A birder since childhood, he has maintained a constant presence in the world of the tabloid news since the mid-1990s, bringing innumerable stories about birds and birdwatchers to the masses in the process. This enthralling book offers a window into the sometimes shady worlds of tabloid journalism and bird watching. In the process it explores the full stories behind the very best scoops. You may think that bird watching would be a rather refined hobby, but you would be very wrong indeed. There are tales of obsession - traveling the length and breadth of the country in pursuit of rarities; tragedy - risking life and limb in the line of duty; celebrity - both human and avian, from Jeremy Clarkson and David Attenborough to 'Sammy the Stilt'; crime - from felony to rivalries that turned nasty; and scandal - just what is the most debauched use of a bird hide? In the course of its 18 chapters covering all the key birding events and personalities of the past two decades and beyond, this book may just become the biggest 'must-read' book for birders since Bill Eddie's "Little Black Bird Book". What a scoop that would be.

Devoted to birds and wildlife since childhood, Mark’s early scientific research at Oxford, Aberdeen and the RSPB provided a solid background for his management, ambassadorial, and political lobbying activities which were to follow – and his larger than life, yet quietly humane personality has provided the final tools in his own, unique, nature conservationists’ toolbox. In this book, Mark mixes a great many stories from his professional life at the RSPB with personal anecdotes and passionate arguments on past and present issues in bird and nature conservation. He shows us something of the many scientists whose work paves the way for conservation action, places domestic conservation into an international context, takes us behind the scenes to glimpse the politicians who have worked with him, or against him, along the way. Mark leaves us armed with practical tips and a guiding philosophy to take wildlife conservation though the troubled years that lie ahead. A personal, philosophical and political history of 25 years of bird conservation, this book provides an instructive and amusing read for all those who would like a glimpse into the birds and wildlife conservation world – what the issues are, what must be done, how it can be done, and the challenges, highs and lows involved.

Stuart Winter's Tales of a Tabloid Twitcher earned many plaudits in 2010, as the birder journalist who brought the subjects of birdwatching and conservation to millions of red-top readers over a period of more than a decade shared some of his most captivating 'scoops'. This second installment of tales follows a similar format and covers stories from around the world. Each of the 20 or so chapters covers a range of tales and issues at a rapid pace, and is accompanied by a series of amusing line drawings. Once again there are stories of sin and scandal mixed with serious messages about bird conservation and the environment. Thanks to Stuart's role as news editor on a national newspaper the title is guaranteed to be heavily promoted to a wide audience of interested readers of his 'Birdman' column among the Sunday Express's weekly readership of 600,000 people, as well as in the birding and wildlife magazines for which he regularly contributes.
