About this book

Includes all known books, pamphlets and papers which contain substantial studies of the birds of local areas, from a county down to a back garden or a gravel pit. Each county has an introduction on its boundaries and the history of its ornithology. There has been no comprehensive national publication of this kind since Mullens, Swann and Jourdain's Geographical Bibliography in 1920. The volume also provides a detailed record of the many county and local bird reports and of the ever-increasing number of area surveys produced by statutory and voluntary bodies. The material is arranged by the pre- 1974 counties and takes the record up to 1995. There are maps to show the many changes in county boundaries since 1800. A magnificent contribution to ornithological history.


A brief history of local recording; the arrangement of this book; the counties of England; the counties of Wales; the counties of Scotland and the Isle of Man.
