Beautifully illustrated throughout in colour from the author's own collection of photographs, this spectacular book is the work of one of the world's most-travelled authorities on wetland birds. The beauty of the bird life is set against telling explanations of how wetland habitats work and of their place in the international conservation scene. Still a haven for huge breeding populations of herons, storks, ibises, spoonbills, anhingas, cormorants, wildfowl, waders, and birds of prey, wetlands are some of the world's last and best wild places. Features: * Contains a superb collection of bird photographs * Describes some of the world's most important wetland habitats * Considers the important questions of conservation in these increasingly threatened environments
