Bird-Life of the Borders:

RECORDS OF

WILD SPORT AND NATURAL HISTORY
ON MOORLAND AND SEA.

BY



**At last we have a book on birds in their haunts by a writer who is
thoroughly master of his subject — one who has plenty to say, and who also
knows how to place his experiences ▼ividfy before the reader. The portions
devoted to the Cheviots and the moorlands recall the scent of the heather, while
the narrative of adventures by day and by night in a gunning punt along the

* slakes* off Holy Island is pervaded by the keen salt breezes from the North Sea.
In addition to his powers of description, Mr. Chapman is possessed of consider-
able abilities as a draughtsman, and although, through modesty, the fact is not
mentioned on the title-page, this work contains numerous illustrations from his
own pen-and-ink sketches, some of them being really admirable for breadth and
boldness of execution As r^^ards the second part, which treats of wild-
fowling with the stancheon-gun, we can only say that nothing like it has appeared
since the publication of Colonel Hawker's classic work. The haunts and habits
of wild-fowl by day and night have never before been so clearly pointed out in
any work with which we are acquainted.'' — Athetueitm,

'* One of the pleasantest books conceivable .... it illustrates the valuable
results of many years' observation, sometimes in the way of jottings from note-
books, sometimes in descriptive sketches that are the most stirring and animated
of pictures. Mr. Chapman is a naturalist of Gilbert White's school in the keen-
ness and accuracy of his perceptions. He sees things for himself and takes
nothing upon trust. Every lover of a country life will delight in his vivid
sketches. , . . . The author's enthusiasm is something irresistible. Even the
drawbacks of that 'waiting game,* wild- fowling appear as of no weight when
estimating the glories of the sport as set forth in the admirable chapters on

* Wild-Fowl of the North-East Coast,' 'Midnight on the Oozes,' * Wild-Fowl
and the Weather,' and so forth. Mr. Chapman illustrates his book with pen-
and-ink drawings, chiefly of wild-fowl, whicn are excellent for the most part, aqd
excellently reproduced." — Saturday Review.

** The ardour for sport is" tempered in the author's case by a steady habit of
observation, backed by careful note-taking and reflection^ and widened by experi-
ences in other lands ; and the result is such an accurate record of the habits and
movements of living birds in a single district, and at all seasons of the year, as is
hardly to be found in any other volume of the same modest size and pretensions.
.... When the Southern reader lays down this book he feels quite at home
among the curlew, the golden plover, and the grouse on the moors ; he feels that
he has done the next l^st thing to a personal endeavour to get a sight of those
long lines of wild-geese on the bleak Northumbrian coast" — Spectator,

" An invigorating out-of-doors air pervades this book, and a happy directness

of description Although very comprehensively treating of bird-life, a

considerable portion of the book — and that not the least interesting — is devoted
to -shooting (open and covert), but mainly punt shooting. In sporting experi-
ence, so far as concerns the north-east coast, Mr. Chapman stands in the front
rank, and discourses of it with an authority beyond controversy or challenge." —

** Among the classics of local Natural History." — Scotsman.

** His pac^es bristle with curiously minute and interesting facts concemii^
* our feathered friends.*" — Lfei/s Mercury,

** Reads with the freshness of romance.*' — Glasgow Herald,

'< Every page is original, breezy, and fresh, and calculated to arouse the
longings of the sportsman, naturalist, and artist.*' — Nevocastle CottranL

"One of the best books we have ever come across on bird-life, not only of
the borders, but of the United Kingdom.** — IVestem Daily Press (Bristol).

"A charming book, of which no true naturalist or sportsman will quickly
tire. ** — Guardian,

"Will enchant all who are fond of birds. Sympathy with all living crea-
tures, careful observation with cautious deductions, and strong love for the bleak
moors and wild scenery of the Cheviots— such are the characteristics of this

most interesting book The illustrations add a great charm to a book

redolent of wild life and careful observation.** — Academy,

** Abounds in subjects of interest; the scientist will not be disgraced and the

lover of sport and outdoor adventure will be more than pleased The

illustrations are in every sense an additional charm. .... No book we ever
read so amply fulfilled the promise of its title.*' — Kelso MaU,

*' We predict for it the success to which its originality and charm, no less
than its scientific value, eminently entitle it." — Northern Whig (Belfast).

" Transports us to the borderland of England and Scotland, as well as to
that of sport and science, and contrives to give us pictures of Arctic Northumber-
land which are appallingly glacial, with episodes of bird-life on moor or marsh
which are astonishmgly wild for the British Islands. .... Writes of them aJl
with the picturesque vigour that comes of thorough knowledge and deep affec-
tion. '*—/W/ Mall Gazette,

** It is doubtful if the birds themselves, if they could read such books, would
not count it folly to wish that their masters were more wise than they are in the
ways of wild -fowl, seeing that such knowledge must be gathered mainly with the
fowling-piece and the stancheon-gun. They might deem the apathy of King Log
preferd>le to the flattering attentions of King Stork. Books of Sport and
natural histoiy are written, however, for sportsmen and naturalists ana not for
birds. Mr. Chapman's volume is one of the best of its kind. It has blemishes,
as every work that has vigour and originality about it must have. But it is full
of keen and intelligent observation. .... Exhilarating and delightful.'* — Scots
Observer,

'* Many years of wandering on the hills, moors, and mosses of the Border-
land, and of wild -fowl shooting on the bleak and exposed north-east coast, have
given the author ample opportunity, and he has evidently made use of his chances,
me result being these pleasant and original chapters, written in the best style,
and the perusal of which must be delightlul to every true lover of nature.*' — TTu
Naturalist,

"This is an admirable book of its kind .... full of interest to devotees of
the gun and rod.** — Nature,

** For attitudes of wild-geese we have seen nothing better than the illustra-
tions to Mr. Abel Chapman*s * Bird-life of the Borders.^'*— 7>ir Field,

'* Although reviewers may play for safety when they are not sure of their
subject as regards an indifferent book, they show a wonderfully quick appreciation
for one that is thoroughly good. The present volume is a case in point, for the
author is at once a true sportsman and a naturalist, as well as an artist of no mean
ability, and from all sides comes the chorus of praise.'* — Annals and Magazine tf
