    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    All of the Nethersole-Thompson family contribute in some measure to this book but it is Dr Desmond Nethersole-Thompson's life-long interest in waders which gives the work its exceptional quality and authority. For well over fifty years the study of waders and their behaviour has been his passion, and his great knowledge and experience are internationally... more...

  • The Manx Shearwaterby Michael Brooke

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    The Manx Shearwater must rank amongst the world's most evocative seabirds. Whether it be seen slicing the wave tips of a stormy sea or uttering its weird strident cry in the night sky above a breeding colony, it has all the magic that a bird lover could wish for - and many of the characteristics that make seabirds of such interest to biologists.... more...

  • The Hen Harrierby Donald Watson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    Artist, ornithologist and author, Donald Watson has made an especial study of the Hen Harrier Circus cyaneus over many years and his field notes and sketch books of this exceptional bird of prey go back to the 1940s.

  • Man and Wildfowlby Janet Kear

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The involvement of humans with ducks, geese and swans has probably been closer than with any other group of birds, today and for several millenia past. This involvement, in its many aspects, is the theme of this compelling and readable account by an Assistant Director of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. Dr Kear ranges widely, from a summary of... more...

  • The Natural History of Cape Clear Islandby J.T.R. Sharrock; Robert Gillmor

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    Cape Clear Island, the most southerly point of Ireland apart from the nearby Fastnet Rock, has been the site of a bird observatory since 1959. This account of the island, its flora and fauna, its inhabitants and history, is weighted in favour of the birds but this is, perhaps, inevitable since the island offers so much of exceptional ornithological... more...

  • Birds and Forestryby Mark Avery; Roderick Leslie

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The conflict between forestry and nature conservation has, in recent years, become a major environmental issue. The planting of large tracts of land with exotic conifers and the resulting disturbance of existing plant and animal communities has polarized the debate, each camp believing that it holds the most rational view. This book tackles the issues,... more...

  • Birds by Nightby Graham Martin

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    For many people, watching and studying birds is exclusively a day time activity. However, for many birds twilight and night time are not a barrier to useful activity. It is true that very few birds are exclusively nocturnal, but many birds which are active by day also conduct limited, and often crucial, activities after dusk. This book examines many... more...

  • Red Data Birds in Britainby L.A Batten; C.J Bibby; P. Clement; G.D Elliott; R.F Porter

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2013; US$ 19.99

    The various Red Data Books prepared by the IUCN and ICBP have set the standards for recognizing birds close to or at risk of extinction worldwide.
