« I have during the past two years been delighted to publish a series of articles by Pierre de Chabannes […] He is obviously extremely knowledgeable about birds and bird keeping and zoological and wildlife collections around the world. In addition, he is an excellent photographer and we have greatly enjoyed seeing his photos […] which he has used to illustrate his articles and which have made them such a highlight of recent issues of the magazine. In recognition of this, the Avicultural Society council judged him the worthy winner of the Dulcie Cooke Award for his outstanding photographs in the magazine during 2010. »
