  • The Sparrowsby Denis Summers-Smith

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Denis Summers-Smith first took up the study of the House Sparrow in 1947, thinking that the difficulties of travel in post-war Britain would best suit the study of a species always close at hand. The humble House Sparrow, common everywhere, was surprisingly poorly researched and his work soon provided interesting insights into this successful and... more...

  • The Atlas of Wintering Birds in Britain and Irelandby Peter Lack

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    This companion volume to The Atlas of Breeding Birds of Britain and Ireland is derived from surveys of birds present in Britain and Ireland during the three winters, 1981/82, 1982/83 and 1983/84. The surveys were organised by the British Trust for Ornithology and the Irish Wildbird Conservancy, as were the earlier breeding birds surveys. ... more...

  • Gulls: A Guide to Identification. 2nd Editionby P.J Grant

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    This second edition of Peter Grant's guide has been extensively revised and has been reset throughout. Importantly, a further eight species of gulls occurring on the west coasts of Canada and the USA have been added. The book now covers 31 species and has been increased in length from 280 to 352 pages. More than 280 new photographs have been added... more...

  • The Sparrowhawkby Ian Newton

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Dr Newton is now a senior ornithologist with the Natural Environment Research Council and the book draws on his wide knowledge of the Sparrowhawk, as well as that of other workers in Britain and abroad, to give a detailed account of all aspects of its lifestyle, population levels and trends and the impact of man and environment on the species ... more...

  • Birds in Scotlandby Valerie M. Thom

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    This impressively comprehensive study and review of the birds in Scotland by Valerie Thom, editor of Scottish Birds and past-President of the Scottish Ornithologists' Club, may be said to follow on where the celebrated two volumes of The Birds of Scotland (1953), by Dr Baxter and Miss Rintoul, left off. It does more than that, however, since not only... more...

  • A Dictionary of Birdsby Bruce Campbell; Elizabeth Lack

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    A Dictionary of Birds enlists contributions from over 280 ornithologists and other specialists from around the world. Major, authoritative articles cover the field of modern ornithology and related subjects, many of them running to several thousand words. In addition there are articles on all the bird families, almost all of which are illustrated by... more...

  • Enjoying Ornithologyby Ronald Hickling

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    This year, 1983, the British Trust for Ornithology celebrates its first 50 years and this volume records much of the history of birdwatching and ornithology since the early 1930s. The book is not a history of the BTO, but many of the Trust's achievements helped fashion the development and direction of ornithology over the decades, and major aspects... more...

  • Birds New to Britain and Irelandby J.T.R. Sharrock

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The 83 species featured in this book, in date sequence of discovery, had not been recorded in Britain or Ireland before 1946. The original accounts of the sightings published in issues of British Birds* between 1947 and 1982 are now reprinted and supplemented with comment by Dr Sharrock on subsequent occurrences and current status. In addition,... more...

  • Estuary Birds of Britain and Irelandby A.J Prater

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Estuaries are rightly of great interest and concern to the birdwatcher. Most teem with thousands of waders, geese, ducks, gulls and other species that use them at times throughout the year; they are also among the last of the wild places left in Britain and Europe. The 'Birds of Estuaries Enquiry' (sponsored by the Nature Conservancy Council and... more...

  • The Birdwatcher's Dictionaryby Peter Weaver

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The author defines more than 1100 words and terms in this illustrated dictionary for the birdwatcher. Its attraction for the relative novice is obvious but it is equally directed to experienced birdwatchers who will find succinct definitions of terms that are new to them and of others that they have understood none too well. Whatever the user's... more...
