Description:

2nd edition. First published in 1956 by Methuen & Co. this book still offers astonishing insights into the lifestyle of swifts. Based on observations of the swifts nesting in the tower of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Now more than sixty years later swifts have been studied even more thoroughly, with technology unimaginable in the 1950s. This continues to reveal even more of their secrets, so this edition, published in association with the RSPB for their Oxford Swift City project includes a new chapter by Andrew Lack, bringing the story of this remarkable bird into the 21st Century.
