The Seabird's Cry
The Lives and Loves of Puffins, Gannets and Other Ocean Voyagers
Adam Nicolson combines science, tradition and poetry in his ‘exploration of the ways in which seabirds exert their hold on the human imagination’. He describes the lives and habits of ten birds, among them native species of the British Isles, the albatross of the Southern Ocean and the extinct great auk, each one showing a different facet of seabirds’ unique ability to exist in three elements – on the sea, in the air and on land. Winner of the Wainwright Prize, 2018.
