The Author

Dr. Eckart Pott went bird-watching with his binoculars in the countryside from his early youth. He published his first books during his biology studies. For many years he has completely dedicated himself to writing and photography. He is hardly ever at home as he much prefers to be outside in the wilds, where he can concentrate on animals without interruption.
