Four years in the making, The Ultimate Companion for Birding in Southern Africa takes bird books as we know them to a whole new level with his incredible insight, specialist bird knowledge and exceptional photography., Peter pioneered the use of photographs to illustrate bird books in the 1970s. He has compiled more than 10 iconic bird books for the southern African region, each one building on the success of the previous one. He teamed up, once again with Geoff McIlleron, Honorary President of the Plettenberg Bay Branch of BirdLife South Africa and a member of the Photographic Society of South Africa, Geoff’s life-long love of the natural world and dedication to its photography has seen him put together a personal collection of photographs covering well over 600 southern African bird species.
