    Excerpt from Bird-Life of the Borders, Records of Wild Sport and Natural History on Moorland and Sea The substance of the following chapters is based on observations extending over a series of years, and accumulated while serving a long apprenticeship to rod, fowling-piece, and stanchion-gun, by "fell and flood," in the Borderland. The use of the plural pronoun is intended to include my uncle, Mr. G. E. Crawhall, and my brothers, with whom many of my sporting days have been spent. While freely expressing opinions on sport and cognate subjects, I distinctly disclaim any pretensions to special skill therein, beyond the average: nor are the few narratives of sporting incidents introduced with a view to "blowing my own trumpet," but as the best means of illustrating certain phases of bird-life, and of the practice of wildfowling afloat. Like a finger-post, one may point to a goal which one is never permitted to attain. A few of the chapters have appeared (substantially) as articles in The Field, others in the Pall Mall Gazette, and to the editors of those journals I am indebted for the privilege of reproducing them. To Mr. Howard Saunders, for his extreme good-nature in revising the proof sheets, and invaluable advice thereon, I owe no small debt of gratitude. The illustrations - rough pen-and-ink drawings by the author, reproduced by photo-zincography - are intended to serve as character-sketches rather than as portraits, and have no pretensions either to scientific accuracy or artistic merit.
