Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sir Frank Fraser Darling (born Frank Darling, 23 June 1903 - 22 October 1979) was an English ecologist, ornithologist, farmer, conservationist and author, who is strongly associated with the highlands and islands of Scotland. Frank Darling was born in the loft of a farm stable near Chesterfield in northern England, the illegitimate son of Harriet Ellse Cowley Darling and Frank Moss. His mother was the daughter of a prosperous family from Sheffield. Her family wanted the child to be fostered and forgotten about. However, she would not cooperate and refused to part with Frank. His father, whom he never met, left for East Africa around the time of his birth, and was killed in action on the Kenya-Tanganyika border in 1917.show more
