British Birds Folklore
Species by species Francesca Greenoak delves into this heritage of birdlore, discussing the origin of the birds name, any regional variations in that name, and the folklore attached to that particular species. Alongside this she provides ample examples of the role particular species have played in poetry and prose. Many of the accounts are accompanied by evocative line drawings from a range of well-known bird illustrators. First published as All the Birds of the Air (1979).
