The Status of Birds in Britain and Ireland

Overview

As the combined British and Irish list edges ever closer to 600 (several new species are added each year), the need for a new, up-to-date status of our birds becomes more apparent. This authoritative work of reference gives a detailed assessment of the status and distribution of every species on the British and Irish lists, for the first time since 1971. Importantly, it also covers each subspecies known to have occurred on our islands. The book is complemented with a 32-page colour section illustrating some of the species and habitats representative of the British Isles. This essential work deserves to be on the shelves of every birder and ornithologist with an interest in the status and distribution of our birds.

RSPB '...an up-to-date summary of avian distribution, status and especially taxonomy for all our islands, this comprehensive book deserves an audience...' Birdwatch (August 2010)
