Situated 10 miles off the North Devon coast and lying across the enterance to the Bristol Channel, Lundy rivals Fair Isle and the Isles of Scilly as one of 'THE' places to watch spring and autumn migrants in Britain. Famed for its puffins, which still breed there in small numbers, Lundy is a magnet for migrating birds and birdwatchers alike, as well as one of the most important seabird islands in English waters.
This new book provides a detailed account of all 317 species on the Lundy list along with notes on another 32 species that have been reported from the island and surrounding waters. Each text includes the species' status, pattern of occurrence, historical records and unique anecdotal insights, as well as an analysis of ringing movements.
Background chapters paint a portrait of the island, describing its human habitation and use, habitats, native flora and fauna, feral grazing animals, bird conservation, ringing, birds through the seasons, and some suggestions on how to make the best use of birdwatching time on the island.
Former Lundy warden and internationally renowned ornithologist Hugh Boyd has contributed to the foreword.
