Swifts in a Tower

Copies are sought of the 2 studies of the swift colony nesting in the tower of the University Museum of Natural History. As a result of the live video relayed to the museum court during the breeding season, several requests are made for these books. Their resale through the museum shop would support the work of the OUMNH. Should you have an unwanted copy of David Lack's classic Swifts in a Tower, or of Derek Bromhall's Devil Birds, please contact (or leave a message for) Margaret Williamson. Tel.: Oxford (2)72961.
