"'BB' describes wildfowling adventures after geese, chiefly on the Scottish coast. He brings to life the excitement of the sport, the tensions of a carefully planned stalk, the patience needed to wait for a flight in a freezing dawn or even by moonlight or a clear night, the careful planning of tactics needed for a successful drive. He has a keen sense for what goes 'in the cold dark hours of pre-dawn whilst other (perhaps more sensible but infinitely duller) mortals sleep', and his concentration on his sport does not prevent him from watching the landscape around him, whose beauties are caught both in his descriptions and in his seven full-page black and white illustrations".
