Great British Birding Experiences

Great British Birding Experiences

Author: Dan Brown Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2017

Until now there has not been a book available which explores the best birding experiences that the UK has to offer. Expert birder Dan Brown knows exactly what makes other people with an interest in birds tick - whether it is watching a single charismatic bird in flight, finding something out of the ordinary, or witnessing a true avian spectacle. In Great British Birding Experiences Dan has compiled a 'Top 40' list of the very best that the country has to offer. These experiences vary, from watching huge congregations of geese or waders, spending a night in a petrel or shearwater colony, to getting up early to listen to the dawn chorus and watching skydancing Hen Harriers. The month-by-month calendar approach makes it easy for the reader to dip into the book and find out what the key spectacles they should be looking for are at any time of year. Locator maps and a gazetteer make it easy to locate sites. The United Kingdom is incredibly fortunate to be home to an amazing network of conservation bodies, protected areas, and a plethora of birds in a compact and highly varied country. Every year birds descend from all parts of the world: Brent Geese and Turnstones from Canada, Swallows and Sandwich Terns from South Africa, Sooty Shearwaters from the South Atlantic, Lesser Whitethroats from India and Rednecked Phalaropes from the coast of South America. The UK really is an international hub of bird activity, and never have birds and wildlife in general been so accessible to the masses. With this unique book as your guide it is possible for readers to experience the incredible sights and wonders as well.

The Great Expectations School A Rookie Year in the New Blackboard Jungle

Author: Dan Brown, Randi Weingarten Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/2011

At the age of twenty-two, Dan Brown came to P.S. 85 as an eager, fresh-faced teacher. He was even as-signed his own class: 4-217. Unbeknownst to him, 4-217 was the designated dumping ground for all fourth-grade problem cases, and his students would prove to be more challenging than he could have ever anticipated. Intent on being a caring, dedicated teacher but confronted with unruly children, absent parents, and a failing administration, Dan was pushed to the limit time and again: he found himself screaming with rage, punching his fist through a blackboard out of sheer frustration, often just wanting to give up and walk away. Yet, in this seeming chaos, he slowly learned--from the more seasoned teachers at the school and from his own mistakes--how to discipline, teach, and make a difference. The Great Expectations School is the touching story of Class 4-217 and their teacher, Mr. Brown. But more than that, it is the revealing story of a broken educational system and all those struggling within and fighting against it.
