Warbler Photo needed for publication

Warbler Photo needed for publication

I have received this email from Peter Kennerley, an expect birdwatcher and old-time friend of HKBWS.  He is seeking photo for his book on Warblers (see details in the following email).  I now call for the attention of bird photographers, to help Peter in this very difficult task of producing a good book on Warblers.  If you can offer some good photos, please do so by contacting Peter directly at

Dear Ho Fai

I am looking for good photographs of warblers to illustrate a book which I'm writing and will be published next year. Details of the book can be found here ... 440&dept%5Fid=2

If you know of anyone who has good photographs of the species below and may be willing to allow them to be included in the book, perhaps you could pass these details onto them. Photographers whose work is published will receive either a small fee or books from A&C Black.

My email address is

Best wishes
