Going for Broke

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Think birders are all old ladies with sensible shoes and in tweed? Think again. Birding is a competitive sport with no holds barred. In 1984 I ended up chasing a 300 bird year in the UK, this is the story of that chase and more besides. Fast cars, girls, hallucinations and very unsuitable footwear all feature in the tale and there are birds too.

About Mark Dennis

Mark Dennis is an English born birder who moved to Canada in 2003. He is now a Canadian citizen, mostly for the Maple Syrup discount but also so that he can wear a tuque legally. After leaving school, a succession of lousy jobs saw him eventually wash up as a warden at Colwick Country Park in Nottingham and he subsequently enjoyed 15 fun-filled years there. Mark now lives in Nova Scotia, birding daily and adjusting to hearing the sea lapping against the not-so-distant shore. Writing has always been a passion and wildlife writing even more so. Over time, more birding books will reveal even more about the largely unknown and often spicy world of birding.

Review by: Bubblesmum on April 05, 2014 :
Great tongue-in-cheek account of a young man's life, based around a passion for birds-nostalgic, witty and gently humorous. Looking forwards to the next one!
