About this book

A systematic review of the birds of Blashford Lakes, in the Avon Valley, western Hampshire, UK. Contains photo vignettes of 20 species, a full map, seven aerial photos, many graphs and charts, and over 130 pages of detailed analysis of resident and migrant birds.

"This book analyses the birds that have occurred at this excellent Hampshire Wildlife Trust reserve in southwest Hampshire. The reserve is centred on a complex of worked-out gravel-pits. Some were excavated in the 1950s or earlier while Ibsley Water, the centrepiece of the reserve, is on the site of a wartime RAF airfield and was not created until the 1990s. The book opens with a brief history of the lakes including historic aerial photographs, details of the data sources used and an account of the typical year’s birding. The bulk of the book comprises the systematic list, which is up to date and suitably detailed to answer most questions about the site. For regular visitors this is an invaluable resource and very good value for money. Hopefully a future edition will be more thoroughly researched, particularly with regard to earlier records."
