THE MUST-HAVE GIFT FOR BIRD LOVERS THIS CHRISTMAS

'Wherever there is a stretch of water for them to find food and make their nest, you will come across swans'

The Mute Swan is not so much a bird, as a national treasure: the avian equivalent of Sir David Attenborough or the Queen. These huge and stately creatures are part of our urban and rural landscapes, a constant presence on lakes, rivers and ponds throughout Britain. Yet despite their familiarity, they are often misunderstood; and while many people love swans, others fear them.

Swans also feature in myths and legends, art and literature, dance and music, not just in Britain but all around the world. Stephen Moss delves into the facts and fiction about these charismatic birds, describes their seasonal life cycle and examines their central role in our history and culture. He also includes stories about 'wild swans' - Whooper and Bewicks - that visit us in winter; and the Black Swan of Australia.

With beautiful illustrations throughout, this eye-opening biography reveals the hidden secrets of one of Britain's best-known birds.
