About this book

David Lack produced the first Birds of Cambridgeshire in 1934 for the Cambridge Bird Club. Since then the avifauna of the county has changed dramatically and the body of the information gathered, largely by amateur birdwatchers, has grown enormously. The bulk of the book is, like Lack's original, an annotated systematic list of the species recorded, but the book is made even more valuable by the inclusion of introductory chapters dealing with the Cambridgeshire countryside and where to go birdwatching. Graham Easy's excellent line drawings illustrate some of the county's characteristic species. First published in 1989.


Preface; 1. The Cambridgeshire countryside; 2. The changing status of the Cambridgeshire's avifauna 1934-1986; 3. Where to watch birds in Cambridgeshire; The systematic list; Appendix; Index.
