About this book

The Birds of Berkshire is a complete and up-to-date account of the county's birds, covering all 330 species recorded in the county. It includes maps derived from the results of the second Berkshire bird atlas survey, undertaken by over 400 volunteers between 2007 and 2011, showing the distribution and abundance of breeding species and winter visitors. Changes since the first survey between 1987 and 1989 and other changes in status are discussed in the context of national trends and changes in habitat, land management and climate.

The Birds of Berkshire will be a unique resource to all interested in the birds of the county, whether birdwatchers, conservationists or policy makers, and sets the benchmark for monitoring changes in future. The species accounts are supplemented by chapters on habitats in the county, the history of ornithology in Berkshire, and a guide to some of the best birdwatching sites, with maps and access infomation. Each species is illustrated with black and white artwork, and many with colour photographs.
