About this book

Fair Isle, an island halfway between Orkney and Shetland, has become famous for the number and variety of rare vagrant birds that have been recorded by the bird observatory there. This is a comprehensive checklist, giving full status for 345 species, and includes all records to the end of 1990, including relevant historical records. There are histograms of migration patterns for 193 species and graphs of breeding numbers for 15 species.
`Island-hoppers, seabird-fans, migrant-watchers and rarity-consumers will all love it.' R A Hume, British Birds.
