TIM APPLETON & C. GALLIMORE    Book Number: 87100    Product format: Paperback

Apart from Woodpeckers, what other family has Ivory-billed, Lineated, Striped and Bar-bellied species? What pigment is responsible for the pink in a flamingo's plumage? Where would you find a Priolo? Which sex incubates the eggs of the Ruff? Do Twite breed in Wales? Rare birds in the UAE, the birds of Hampshire, Flufftails in the world, rare birds in Britain in the 1980s, desert birds of Israel, this is a worldwide crowd pleaser. Based on the popular Bird Brain of Britain contest at the annual Bird Fair, the Glastonbury for birdwatchers, the book features all of the questions asked in the contest in the last 15 years. Many seemingly simple questions turn out to have complex answers, and these are sure to test any birder's knowledge, providing hours of challenging entertainment and education. The contest began in 1992 with the title Mastermind having hatched in a local pub in Hambleton close to the shores of Rutland Water way back in 1987. There is now interest from over 70 countries hosting almost 25,000 visitors annually from as far afield as Vietnam to Cuba, Ethiopia to Peru. With answers at the back, 288pp in paperback.
