Format:Paperback
The comment "A description of all the species of Birds recorded in Menorca" left me unsure what the book would actually contain. I was pleased to find that the book was exactly how the author describes,"It is not in any way a guide (for bird identification)".What the book actually provides is an historical account of all species of bird recorded on the island,each species has a few short paragraphs providing details of status,population changes,habitat,best sites,and for migrants, summer and winter visitors,months of occurence.In the case of scarce species individual records are detailed. There is a wealth of fascinating information which the author has drawn from other literature his own observations and ringing recoveries. Additionally a check list is also provided and a map of the island detailing some of the more interesting sites mentioned in the text.Names are in English,latin,Minorcan,Majorcan,Catalan and Spanish which combined with the book being pocket sized light and easy to carry should make any discussion with a local birder some what easier.It would be churlish to critisize some of the terms which have been lost in the English translation but for the record the term "recuperated" when referring to a ringed bird should read recovered,ie it has either been re-trapped or more than likely,found dead.As the book forms the basis of all the ornithological records for the island it is therefore indispensible for the serious birder or those with a casual interest either visiting or resident. An address to which any significant records could be sent would be useful for any further editions. The author is to be congratulated on producing such an interesting book which is priced at little more than an English county Bird Report.
