About this book

Reprint of 1974 original book.

How many are seen? How regularly do they come? Where do they occur? When are they likely to be spotted?

The above questions are authoritatively answered by the author, Dr J. T. R. Shanrrock, honorary secretary of the British Ornithologists' Union's Retcord Committee and of the Rare Breeding Birds Panel, joint convenor of the European Ornithological Atlas Committee, and a member of the British Birds Rarities Committee and of the Irish Records Panel.

Dr Shanrrock takes a ten-year period and investigates in detail all the records of a selection of birds which occur here as scarce migrants birds from Europe, from Asia and from America. He considers their breeding and wintering ranges, and the pattems of ttieir records in Britain and Ireland, and tries to determine, also: Why do they visit us at all?
