About this book

Summarises the findings of Seabird 2000, a national initative to census all the bredding seabirds in Britain and Ireland which incorporated the work of over 400 individuals counting seabird numbers at coastal and inland sites over 15 years. There is an account for each breeding species, withj text by a specialist author discussing distributional characteristics and changes. There are 2 maps per species - one pinpointing each breeding colony, and another expressing expansion, decline, extinction and new colonisation. This is a readable and comprehensive distillation of the most exhaustive and detailed survey of seabird numbers in Britain ever conducted.
