About this book

Bird Life of Coasts and Estuaries describes the bird life of the British coastline and adjacent off-shore waters from an ecological point of view, using information from research to show how bird distribution and abundance are related to important environmental variables such as marine currents, weather, coastal landform and the influence of man. First published in 1992, the book will appeal to the layman who wants to know more about coastal birds, the birder who wants to find out how birds interact with their environment and all those who are interested in the habitats that make up what is arguably Britain's most important natural asset.
