Description

David Axtell was born and educated in the West Country, where he now lives with his wife and family after a career as a journalist in London. While attending Exeter University, he received help and personal encouragement from the poets Ted Hughes, Ronald Duncan and Ken Smith as well as the Rev Professor W. Moelwyn Merchant and members of his English Department. 'Here are observations made in gardens and from kitchen windows, in the kind of places where all of us can appreciate birds if only we look, if only we allow them in to our own preoccupied world. David Axtell opens our eyes to birds, just being birds, and giving us endless enjoyment. ' Rob Hume, Editor, RSPB magazine, Birds 'This gentle book of poems has an evocative feel for the light and delicate life of birds...intriguing collection...birds in song, in different seasons, in flight and wading...full of precise ornithological observation and well illustrated with light toned gouache paintings. ' George Care, Cornish World Magazineshow more
