About this book

This is a completely revised edition of a Guide which was originally published in 1996 which reprinted and then sold out.

This new Guide has been completely redesigned. The designer – Harry Scott – is the designer for the Scottish Ornithologists' Club quarterly journal – Scottish Birds. He was also responsible for the design of the encyclopaedic two volume The Birds of Scotland. A Guide to Scots Bird Names contains no fewer than 1000 Scots bird names making it the most comprehensive Guide so far published. In addition to the names there are 24 colour illustrations by Mike Langman – one of the best known bird illustrators in Britain. There is an introductory section in which I seek to describe some of the possible origins of Scots bird names. A Guide to Scots Bird Names also contains 24 extracts from Scots poetry (15th to 20th century) which make reference to birds and which complement the text.
