Most popular at the top

  • Birds of the Strait of Gibraltarby Clive Finlayson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The Strait of Gibraltar is famous as a major point of passage for Palaearctic birds migrating between their European breeding grounds and their winter quarters in Africa. Clive Finlayson, a native of the Rock and a trained ornithologist, presents a fascinating account of the region and its resident and transitory bird life. The first chapter of... more...

  • Seventy Years of Birdwatchingby H.G Alexander

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Seventy Years of Birdwatching is not truly an autobiography, there is too little about the author in it, though the personality of this exceptional, shy and gentle man comes through. This is a book about birdwatching, birdwatchers and, above all, birds. It is, in some measure, also a history of the development of modern ornithology in Britain... more...

  • Birds in Irelandby Clive Hutchinson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Birdwatching has become an increasingly popular pastime in Ireland as elsewhere. Nor is all of the birdwatching done by the Irish. Many professional ornithologists from Britain and Western Europe find good reason to study Ireland's birds, as do the numerous birdwatching visitors each year. Clive Hutchinson, a leading Irish ornithologist, has compiled... more...

  • Bird Habitats in Britainby R. J. Fuller

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Rob Fuller's book would not have been possible but for the nationwide cooperative endeavour by amateur and professional ornithologists, naturalists and conservationists which led to the British Trust for Ornithology's Register of Ornithological Sites, sponsored by the Nature Conservancy Council. Hitherto, few books have dealt primarily with bird habitats... more...

  • Breeding Birds of Britain and Irelandby John Parslow

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The very first title in the Poyser series. Published in 1973, this book looks at the breeding status of all of Britain's birds at that time. The book that spawned the award-winning, decades-spanning Poyser series, which now includes more than 100 titles on ornithology. more...

  • Greenshanksby Desmond Nethersole-Thompson; Maimie Nethersole-Thompson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Desmond Nethersole-Thompson has been studying his favourite bird, the greenshank Tringa nebularia, since May 1932. This book, published in 1976, owes much to the interest, almost an obsession, of the Nethersole-Thompson family. The two girls and four boys, as well as both parents, now work as a team in the wild and beautiful north-west Highlands... more...

  • Scarce Migrant Birds of Britain and Irelandby J.T.R. Sharrock

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    SCARCE MIGRANT BIRDS IN BRITAIN AND IRELAND * HOW MANY are seen? * HOW REGULARLY do they come? * WHERE do they occur? * WHEN are they likely to be spotted? The above questions are authoritatively answered by the author, Dr J. T. R. Sharrock, honorary secretary of the British Ornithologists' Union's Record Committee and of the Rare Breeding... more...

  • Pine Crossbillsby Desmond Nethersole-Thompson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    "From mid-January to mid-April 1935 I was off on my dilapidated bicycle, but how different Speyside was from Breckland. In late February many crossbills were still in flocks; I had to walk and cycle for many miles before finding my first nest in the last week of March, when I located a small breeding group in a plantation of old pines close to... more...

  • Rare Birds in Britain and Irelandby J.T.R. Sharrock; E.M Sharrock

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Dr J. T. R. Sharrock is uniquely placed to write about the rare birds of Britain and Ireland. He is a member of all three bodies which adjudicate on such records - honorary secretary of the British Ornithologists' Union's Records Committee and a member of both the British Birds Rarities Committee and the Irish Records Panel. He is already the... more...

  • Waders: their Breeding, Haunts and Watchersby Desmond Nethersole-Thompson; Maimie Nethersole-Thompson

    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...
