  • The Status of Seabirds in Britain and Irelandby Clare Lloyd; Mark L. Tasker; Ken Partridge

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The oceanographic and coastal features of the British Isles provide a wealth of ideal habitats for breeding seabirds and it is no surprise that the British and Irish seabird populations are of international importance, both in sheer numbers and in species diversity. Indeed, for some species British waters are host to the greater part of the world's... more...

  • The Kestrelby Andrew Village

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Surprisingly, for one of Europe's commoner birds of prey, relatively little is known about some aspects of the Kestrel's behaviour and associations. Dr Village's book leaves us far better informed and is an inviting combination of readability and scholarship that reflects his dedication and enthusiasm for Falco tinnunculus. The author studied... more...

  • Birds and Berriesby Barbara Snow; David Snow

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The book's subtitle - A study of an ecological interaction - properly reflects the author's theme but may tend to hide the fact that the relationships between birds and berries can be much more than the simple, mutually advantageous systems ('eat my fruits, spread my seeds' ) they may seem at first to be. Therein lies the core of the book - the less... more...

  • 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...
