A glance at the A to Z section of quarry species gives a very good idea of the scope of the book, which ranges from the commonplace to the unusual. Of course, there are entries for pheasant and partridge (both grey and redleg), but also for black grouse, ptarmigan and golden plover, plus the various species of goose and duck. The author describes them in detail – their appearance, their habitats and their habits. He does not ignore the four-legged quarry either, as hare, squirrel and rabbit, for example are all included too. So whatever your chosen quarry, you will find an accurate description, as well as an unusual fact, a tip for improving your equipment or your technique, or a useful titbit of information that will not only stand you in good stead for your shooting day but also increase your enjoyment.Learn More
The updated paperback includes new memories from former pupils and friends along with news of what happened to Kidson’s mother.
Move over Mr Chips. Kidson had everything that central casting requires of a legendary schoolmaster: a passion for his subject, a brilliant didactic style, a silly walk, a smelly spaniel, breath-taking rudeness, eccentric mannerisms and catchphrases, a maverick attitude towards authority, and above all, a deep empathy, loyalty and dedication towards his boys. He had an extraordinary influence on his pupils – David Cameron, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Johnnie Boden, Nicky Henderson, Sir Matthew Pinsent, ‘Lupin’ and Dominic West among them.
