As a point of trivial pedantry the authors surname is Cocker (as in "Joe ...") rather than Cotter (as in "... Dam" or "... pin".)    

$5 was an exceptionally good price as my copy from Book Depository was $Aus60.  I am perplexed  why anyone would get rid of the book!

It may be interest that this information came from a 592 page book entitled Birds and People by Mark Cotter, photos by David Tipling, purchased for $5 at  the Rotary book fair. Something of a bargain for this publication originally cost UK 40 pounds sterling.
