About this book

Birds of Hertfordshire is a full county avifauna covering all the species ever recorded in the county. The species accounts detail the records and patterns of occurrence for all our common garden birds through to the most exotic Herts rarities. Birds of Hertfordshire presents the results of the most recent Atlas surveys of breeding and wintering birds, together with analysis and comparison with the two previous atlases. It also draws on results from Breeding Bird and Wetland Bird Surveys in the county.

Written by Herts Bird Club experts Ken Smith, Chris Dee, Jack Fearnside and Mike Ilett with invited chapters by Tom Gladwin and Graham White.
