About this book

From the Foreword: `The core of this work is the careful distillation of literature, letters, records and documents covering the history of the past two hundred years of Devon ornithology. Our forefathers...began a tradition that eventually spread across social barriers and led to a great burgeoning of interest and concern for our natural environment culminating in the foundation and success of county societies, like Devon Bird Watching and Preservation Society.'
