‘Trying to imitate the call of the male eider made us all laugh. None of my bird books adequately describe the sound. So, in order to remember it, I firstly imagine the sound a (peckish) adult human would make on finding a chocolate bar hidden in his rucksack. Then I imagine the sound a teenage human would make to mock the adult. And it still makes me laugh’
