This CD contains an incredible 700 photographs of more than 2,100 eggs from 215 species, coverage of almost all species found in the UK. A number of photographs of each species egg illustrate the variation which can be found in both size and color - the most extreme of which - the Guillemot, is documented by 65 photographs. This information opens up the true breadth of the egg collection at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry - it represents data from a bygone age when collecting birds eggs was still considered an acceptable means of studying bird populations.
