The Atlas describes the distribution and population density of 250 species found in Surrey during surveys carried out by volunteers between 2007 and 2012. It shows how these species have fared in the county since the last surveys were carried out between 1988 and 1997. The species accounts are supported by maps and tables where relevant, and accounts include photographs taken within the county.
"[...] Overall, the production values are a little less impressive than those of the London Atlas – but the Surrey Atlas is competitively priced, and provides a wealth of information to those interested in the birds of all, or part, of that county. The Surrey Bird Club can be rightly prou of an excellent and useful publication."
