The only creatures at home on land, at sea and in the air, seabirds evolved to thrive in the most demanding environments. The Seabird’s Cry follows their paths from the Hebrides to Orkney, Shetland and around the world, explaining how they navigate, feed, mate and breed. Each of ten chapters is devoted to a different bird, including guillemots, albatrosses, and the great auk, whose extinction prompts a sobering warning about the decline in seabird numbers. Winner of the Wainwright Prize, 2018.
