On Crescent Wings

I am very grateful to Mascot Media who have produced my first book, On Crescent Wings, a portrait of the Swift. The book is currently being printed by Swallowtail Print in Norfolk.

After a very slow start, this has been something of a ‘vintage’ Swift summer. The weather has enabled frequent prospecting and screaming parties here. Having moved house last summer I have been attempting to start a new colony here in Gilling East. A Swift entered one of my boxes yesterday and we are seeing regular fast flypasts by up to nine birds. The signs are good but I will have to wait until next year to see if my efforts have worked. There are about two weeks left now to enjoy the main Swift activity. Peak counts in this village have regularly doubled those of last year.

Here are some pages from my book. The photographs show a unbound proof copy. It will retail at £20 and will be available from mid August via this website.
