About this book

From the publisher's announcement: Accounts of birds never before recorded in Britain - spotted for the first time, capturing the extraordinary excitement of this most rare and coveted birding experience. Since 1980, a total of 72 bird species have been found for the first time in Britain. Each individual, although hopelessly lost and quite possibly doomed, has brought birding celebrity for its finder, and a swarm of admirers to view the bird itself. This new book is the successor to Birds New to Britain and Ireland by Sharrock and Grant (Poyser, 1982), which covered the new birds discovered between 1958 and 1990. The accounts of each new bird's finder are reproduced from their original sources (mainly from British Birds and Birding World). Fascinating, reading for everyone who has an interest in migration and vagrancy, has made the journey to see any of the birds concerned, or has ever dreamed of finding a 'first' of their own.
