About this book

Rostherne Mere, in north Cheshire, has long been renowned for its birdlife. Observations made since the 1880s are brought together here in a richly illustrated account exploring the What? When? How? and Why? of its birds. Learn, for example:
- What connects Pochard with Salford Docks, Chorlton and Rostherne.
- When to look out for an Osprey.
- How have Pintail yo-yoed in line with the Mersey and Dee.
- Why sea-ducks like Common Scoters keep appearing here.

Read too about ‘continental’ Cormorants, gulls, ‘guanotrophy', bird-strikes at Manchester Airport, the effects of cold and warmer winters and much more.

Written by birders who have watched Rostherne since the 1970s, the book updates accounts published in 1914 and 1955 by two greats of Cheshire natural history, Thomas Coward and Arnold Boyd, and that of 1977 by Ron Harrison of Altrincham and warden David Rogers. Paintings, photos and charts make this thorough account of the birdlife of Cheshire's most celebrated mere a highly attractive one too.
