In Scilly Birding, author Simon Davey tells the story of his growth into fully fledged twitcher, while also telling the stories of the birds that he sees and the antics of his fellow birdwatchers. In many respects this book is a story of the right of passage into a balanced frame of mind, while offering some hilarious insights into an extreme hobby.

...This is the tale of the ups and downs of two Scilly weeks in October 1984. To some readers it will open up a strange new world of looking for rare birds and to others it will recall similar days of joy and/or (usually and) frustration. It's a good read and will appeal to more than the committed birder. --Mark Avery, Independent environmental expert
