About this book

Chew Valley Lake provides a unique opportunity to study this newly created man-made habitat over the last 70 years.  It describes the Chew Valley before the lake, and the exceptional archaeological excavations and discoveries made during construction, as well as the celebrations of its opening by the young Queen and Prince Philip in 1956. This superbly illustrated book is aimed at birdwatchers, but also at all people who are interested in wildlife, ecology and the environment. The book includes over 350 illustrations (original paintings, line drawings by the late Laurel Tucker and superb photographs) as well as over 400 graphs and charts.

Media reviews

"[...] The overall feel of the book is enhanced by Laurel Tucker's sketches, Ray Scally's specially commissioned paintings (I particularly like his 'Redstart in a snowstorm') and some fine photography. While several naturalists make major contributions, it is Keith Vinicombe's imprint that is most firmly stamped on the book. [...] Site avifaunas are always useful references but unless their subject is your own patch, they do not always make for the most exciting reading. That's definitely not the case here, with a chapter on memorable birding moments recalling some priceless tales. [...] If you have an interest in West Country birding, you should invest in this great book."
– Tim Harris, BirdGuides.com

"[...] this monumental book is well-judged, well-illustrated, well-designed and well worth having on your bookshelf. Yes, especially if you know the site or you are one of the hundreds of birders who live in or like me, grew up in, the catchment area of this sheet of water. [...] This is quite a book. Packed with information and beautifully illustrated with fine photographs, well-presented tables and graphs and with Laurel Tucker’s artwork. There are stories and opinions as well as facts and figures. [...] My Chew years number only those when I had a bicycle in my teens before heading off to university, never to live in the Bristol area since. KEV has been birding this site before I started and all the years since. Wow! And his love for this place and its birds shines through these pages."
– Mark Avery
