About the Author

Martyn Stenning developed an interest in natural history early in his childhood. From 'Microscope Monitor' at primary school to a focus on science at secondary school, as well as being an avid reader of wildlife books and investigator of nature, he was destined for the academic study of ecology. Following an HND in Biology, Martyn joined the University of Sussex Biological Sciences team in 1976. He gained a master's degree by thesis on Pied Flycatchers in 1984, followed by a DPhil on Blue Tits in 1995, and wrote a number of scientific publications on each of these species. Other subjects of study over the years have included chalk downland plants, tropical aquatic snails, dormice and - inevitably - other bird species.

Reviews

This is an impressive study of one of our most familiar yet most fascinating birds. It will certainly appeal to the professional ecologist but the general reader and amateur birdwatcher will find many revealing insights here too. -- Andy Stoddart * Rare Bird Alert *
Packed with information but written in a friendly style that demonstrates the author's real affection for the species ... at last, one of our commonest birds has been given the treatment that it deserves! -- Keith Betton * British Wildlife magazine *
This deceptively slim volume packs a mass of information about one of our most familiar birds into its pages. -- David Parkin * British Birds *
