  • The Pied Flycatcherby Arne Lundberg; Rauno V. Alatalo

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    The Pied Flycatcher is one of Europe's best-studied species. The first detailed work on it was begun in the 1930s by German ornithologists, but it was Lars von Haartman's Finnish study that both established long-term research on the species and founded many of the central themes of modern ornithology. Soon after, in the late 1940s, Bruce Campbell... more...

  • In Search of 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 adaptable... more...

  • Great Auk Islands; a field biologist in the Arcticby Tim Birkhead

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    A book for professional and amateur ornithologists, students in ecology and animal behaviour. The Arctic is one of the world's last great wildernesses: a place of outstanding beauty, history and extraordinary wildlife in which seabirds form an important component of a rich, marine environment. Like many other remote regions, it is under threat... more...

  • Rare Birds Day by Dayby Steve Dudley; Tim Benton; Peter Fraser; John Ryan

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2010; US$ 19.99

    Rare Birds Day by Day follows three earlier Poyser titles looking at scarce and rare birds recorded in Britain and Ireland, Scarce Migrant Birds in Britain and Ireland (Sharrock, 1974), Rare Birds in Britain and Ireland (Sharrock & Sharrock, 1976) and Rare Birds in Britain and Ireland (Dymond, Fraser & Gantlett, 1989). Like these previous books, this... more...

  • 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 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...
