"superbly written and researched, and will henceforth be the standard-bearer of this type of country avifauna that others will want to match up to." British Birds (Feb 2006) "Virtually all the most essential information on England's birds is to be found in a single source." British Ornithologists' Union (2006) "Birds in England is excellent. With 495 pages of analysis of all species with self-sustaining populations it is a must for birders, and at GBP40 a definite bargain." Colin Tudge Biologist (July 2005) "For the first time, virtually all the most essential information on England's birds is to be found in a single source." "For years to come, Birds in England will be the primary reference work for researchers and birders who wish to look up anything about the avifauna of England and will reward the casual reader with many hours of entertainment." British Ornithologists Union (2006) "Presents a comprehensive and up-to-date synthesis of the status and distribution of birds, and though it may at first appear daunting, its authors have done a splendid job assembling vital information." The Guardian (26 Nov 2005)
The Poyser avifaunas Birds in Scotland, Birds in Ireland and Birds in Wales are all now regarded as classic works. The series is now completed with Birds in England, an avifauna for England's diverse birdlife, past and present. England marks the northwestern limit for many Palearctic breedingbirds, and is close to the southwestern limit for several others - inparticular, several seabird species whose English colonies are ofinternational significance. It is the first point of arrival for newcolonists from the south - Little Egret and Yellow-legged Gull are tworecent arrivals - and it is also of international importance forwintering and passage populations of various species which breed in thefar north of the Palearctic. A diverse and fascinating avifauna isaugmented by visits from an impressive range of rarites from as far afield as Siberia and Canada - Nearctic vagrants in particular are well-represented on the English list. This important new avifauna looks in detail at England and itsbirds, analysing present and historical data to present a completepicture of the status, range and abundance of every bird on the Englishlist.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
