A very readable collection of pieces drawn from Ian Niall's experiences shooting wild ducks and geese on foreshore and marsh. "What follows is a picture of a personal world rather than of the wildfowler's world in general. It is intended to be a guide to the uncommitted novice in the hope that he may come to appreciate my world in which impressions and atmosphere are more important than getting a duck or a goose for dinner." Chapters include: Waterbirds; A gun for a goose; Wild duck; Walking water-meadows; Birds in the barley; The lure of the marsh; Tides run; Moonlight madness; Frost and flood; Teal flight; Wigeon ways; Lesser fowl; The wild goose; Greylags and pinkfeet; Ancient art; Odd birds.
