Small 4to., original cloth with dust wrapper; pp. 147, with colour and black and white illustrations by Peter Scott; some foxing to endpapers, otherwise a very good copy.
First edition, no.385 of limited edition of 550 numbered copies signed by the author and illustrator. This account of the author's birdwatching escapades in the Kennet Valley is one of Scott's earliest works as an illustrator. Hilton Young was Scott's step-father, and there is the feeling of a family project to this charming book.
