Does anyone know if the rest of the series is available yet or am I rushing Mr Trevor?

I would recommend Krebs and Davies "Introduction to behavioral ecology". It might be a bit scientific, but it sure widens ones views. You will not look at an animal the same way again...

Here in California :roll: we have to resort to Amazon or the public library for our African animal books. Imagine my surprise when searching the library I found one I first discovered in a KNP shop and purchased for some friends with kids—When Hippo Was Hairy and other tales of Africa, told by Nick Greaves, illustrated by Rod Clement (great alliterative title—kids love it) ISBN in hardcover 0349112614. Each story includes a section with facts about the animal in the story-range, behavior, etc. and the illustrations are wonderful. I learned a lot myself by reading it. He has several other books too-another being When Lion Could Fly. They were in most of the KNP camp shops in soft cover.

Thanks for that, Fevertree :D
I have the "Beat about the Bush, Mammals" and it is a thoroughly enjoyable read.
I know so little about birds, I think that I will really appreciate it.
