Hi all
I've been following this thread for a while - I've actually found in my work
place that, once my colleagues get over their initial surprise and I hear
all the old jokes again, I am then approached fairly regularly by several
asking about for ID on birds that they have seen. The work force as my
employer is, on the whole, young.
The latent interest is there, even if it is only sparked sporadically.
On a wider point, a lot of the commentary about the growth of birding in the
UK and US has been covered in "A Bird in the Bush" by Stephen Moss, which
(believe it or not) is actually a book about the social history of bird
watching from Gilbert White in Selborne onwards.
