Pros
  • Bird Facts, Photography, Photography Tips, Good guide to Farne Islands wildlife
Cons
Described as being a guide to all the major breeding species on the Farne Islands and that is exactly what it is.

It is written by and illustrated with photographs by Kaleel Zibe. From the easy to read style and content he is obviously well acquainted with the wildlife found on the islands. He gives pocket descriptions of each species including some interesting facts gained from his own observations. Population numbers are included as are arrival and departure times and on which island each species can be seen. The book is illustrated by numerous stunning photos many of which are close encounters. There is also a chapter devoted to the Grey Seal.

Kaleel includes is some useful information for anyone considering visiting the Farne Islands including how to get there contact details for boat trips.

Kaleel has also included a useful section on professional photography tips on how to take better photos plus a section on a behind-the-scenes explanation of how many of the photographs illustrating the book were taken, including camera settings.

All in all the book makes for an excellent guide for anyone who is thinking of visiting the Farne Islands or indeed as a memento for anyone who has already been.
