A Photographic Guide To Birds Of Australia

RRP $19.99

The book is aimed directly at field identification. For those species that are sexually dimorphic, have both breeding and non-breeding plumages, or in which the juvenile plumage differs markedly from that of the adult, more than one photograph has been included. Thumbnail silhouettes aid the reader in quickly locating the correct group of birds, and for each species account a map shows the bird's distribution.

About the Author

Peter Rowland was born in 1938 and has lived in NE London all his life. Was maried for more than 30 years but, sadly, became a widower in 1993. Graduated with honours from Bristol University in 1960. Worked in local goverment (primarily the Greater London Council) until 1998, but pursued a parallel career as a historian and biographer (and occasional novelist). His most well-known achievements, to date, have been a biography of David Lloyd George (1975) and engaging the services of Mr Sherlock Holmes to solve the mystery of Edwin Drood (1991). But he has tackled a considerable number of other subjects.

Produced first-ever biography of E.W. Hornung, creator of Raffles, and rediscovered 'Lanoe Falconer' (pseudonym of Victorian author Mary E. Hawker), writing her biography and tracking down many of her "lost" stories. Currently working on a biography of William George, Lloyd George's father, and then hopes to produce one of Thomas Hood. His interests include vintage films, rambling, photography and music.
