This is an interesting point.  Personally I find 'Wingspan' pretty light weight
and not very interesting.  My partner on the other hand is not a birder, but
finds 'Wingspan' quite appealing, and will occasionally read it from front to
back.  This probably means that it's working for its target audience?????

I find BA's in-house newsletter 'Galah' a lot more interesting, as it deals
with birds, bird research, birding, etc. in a bit more of a down to earth,
informative manner.  The format of 'Galah' is anything but glamorous, but
befits its more functional mode.
