Product description

A Lizard Bird Diary is a summary of 45 years of fieldwork on the South Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall, the most southerly point of mainland Britain and presents what is both an historical and contemporary overview of its avifauna 1970-2015, with particular emphasis on migration. The majority of the data has never been previously published and includes numerous records of scarce and rare species. The core of the book is the 270 species accounts. The text is supported by 118 charts and graphs, primarily detailing passage and changes in status, plus maps, photographs and original illustrations with introductory sections on the survey area, methodology, the charts, seabirds and seawatching. Published by the author and printed in a signed, limited edition of 500.

Format: Paperback
The ultimate study of Cornwall`s Lizard birds.
Having been brought up in Cornwall I thought I had a pretty good idea of what species I would be likely to see. Not at all, this book is an eye opener. Glossy Ibis and many other rare birds that visit the Lizard of which I had absolutely no knowledge. It is a wonderful read with fantastic illustrations and photographs.
A must have for all levels of birdwatching enthusiasts.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This authors love for Birds and The Lizard peninsula takes flight from the pages of this beautifully illustrated account. Most telling is how clear our responsibility, as the human species, is for our natural habitat and the devestation our neglect can cause.........this is not delivered in a lecturing tone, as all truths do, it merely rises from the text. I was ashamed to discover that species have come and gone that I'd never heard of...... This book has found its time.........
