The unlikely beginnings of British wildlife conservation.</a><br /><a href="http://shortbooks.co.uk/book/birds-in-a-cage" class="plain-link">Soon after his arrival at Warburg PoW camp, British army officer John Buxton found an unexpected means of escape from the horrors of internment. Passing his days covertly watching birds, he was unaware that he, too, was being watched. Peter Conder, also a passionate ornithologist, had noticed Buxton gazing skywards. He approached him and, with two other prisoners, they founded a secret birdwatching society.
This is the untold story of an obsessive quest behind barbed wire. </a><a href="http://shortbooks.co.uk/book/birds-in-a-cage"><img  src="http://shortbooks.co.uk/wp-content/themes/outreach/images/transparentgif.gif" border="0" width="160px" height="244px" alt="" /></a><a href="http://shortbooks.co.uk/book/a-nazi-in-the-family"><strong>A Nazi in the Family</strong><br />The hidden story of an SS family in wartime Germany</a><br /><a href="http://shortbooks.co.uk/book/a-nazi-in-the-family" class="plain-link">Derek Niemann is the editor of the RSPB’s children’s magazine and has written several books on nature and conservation for young readers.
