About this book

Focuses on vulnerable species which live in or visit Britain, and sets out to define the British situation in a worldwide context, by establishing the importance of British populations and our own responsibilities for contributing to bird conservation. It identifies 117 species under threat, and includes not only those species which occur in small numbers, but those which, although common in Britain or Europe, have restricted distribution elsewhere. Each species account provides up to date information on current populations, basic ecology, the threats faced and the legal protection and conservation measures in force. There are also general chapters on the state of Britain's habitats, legal matters and conservation action for the future.

Digital reprint of a book originally published in 1991.
