"Development, drainage and reclamation of land, both on the coast and inland, have had a marked effect on the habits and habitat of our wildfowl. This in its turn, has brought about a change of attitude on the part of the wildfowler, who realises that if his shooting is to survive and improve in the face of modern difficulties he must play as active a part in conservation as in the pursuit of his quartry. ...Co-operation in a joint cause is the key-note ...throughout this work, the most comprehensive book on the sport today."
