The Greater Flamingo

Authors Alan Johnson and Frank Cezilly – T & AD Poyser, 2007, ISBN 978-0-7136-6562-8, HB

You know exactly what you’re going to get with the Poyser series of species accounts, and this doesn’t disappoint, providing the definitive work on this most photogenic of birds, which was nevertheless relatively ignored by biologists until around 50 years ago. For the casual reader, there’s pretty much everything you might want to know about how these birds live and breed, but the authors also add plenty of their own research into the flamingo population of the Camargue, in southern France, which is enough to start you looking at ferry timetables with a view to popping over there to see some.
