a light hearted little mystery. Points in its favor:
Romance in the older crowd (it's nice to have love in the gray haired set once in a while)
entertaining in a Miss Marple kind of way.
Several books for birders recommended (none of which I knew):
Peregrine- published in the 1970's: the real life diary of an Englishman called Baker, who becomes obsessed with a peregrine falcon
The Herring Gull, by Tinbergen
The Falconer of Central Park- also about an Englishman who spent all his time whil
On balance, I think I enjoyed this better than the other Lydia Adamson I read a while back.
