A bird in the bush: a social history of birdwatching

Moss, S (2004) A bird in the bush: a social history of birdwatching. Aurum Press, London. ISBN 9781854109934

Abstract

Scholarly, authoritative and above all supremely readable, Stephen Moss’s book is the first to trace the fascinating history of how and why people have watched birds for pleasure, from the beginnings with Gilbert White in the eighteenth century through World War Two POWs watching birds from inside their prison camp all the way to today’s ‘twitchers’ with their bleeping pagers, driving hundreds of miles for a rare tick.
