About this book

 Meticulously researched and fully referenced, The Birds of the Falkland Islands represents the culmination of decades of fieldwork by the author and others. lt summarises our current knowledge of the status and distribution of birds in this fascinating archipelago.

A full introduction covers all the expected biogeographical and ecological ground, with strong emphasis on the history of human–avian interactions and the development of wildlife conservation – both among the author's special interests. The systematic list covers all 205 species whose occurrence in the Falklands is well-evidenced, plus another 54 species that require further confirmation. Seven appendices and 32 pages of colour photographs complete the work. This definitive account of Falklands birds will be an essential reference for all those with an interest in the amazing wildlife of the South Atlantic.

  • Great book all round text and photos
    By Mark 21 Aug 2017 Written for Paperback
    Mark Cutt's experience of Falklands birds began in 1993 when serving in HMS Scylla, where he spent a lot of time at sea and became familiar with the pelagic species. Then in 2006/7 he enjoyed a six-month stint ashore and together with fellow RNBWS birder Steve Copsey spending every spare minute out birding. One of the highlights of that six months was three days with author Robin Woods on Middle Island, doing a full ornithological and botanical survey as part of the work for this new book. Next visit was in 2014 when his final tally of Falklands birds was 72 species. Looking at the sources and contributors over the years, it is good to see several RNBWS members mentioned, notably Bill Bourne and Bill Curtis, both RFA men.

Media reviews

"This is the most comprehensive reference list of the birds of the Falkland Islands published to date [...] . For a list-structured book, the text is surprisingly readable throughout."
– Will Miles, British Birds, Volume 110, November 2017

"[...] This is not a field guide. There are 32 pages of nice color photographs, but if you are only interested in identifying the birds you see in the Falklands, this is not the book for you. If, however, you are at all interested in the birds of the Falklands, then this is most definitely a book that you want. The species accounts are highly detailed, focusing on the status and background of the bird in the Falklands. The introduction is detailed as well, covering the islands’ geography, habitats, human impacts, ornithological history, avifauna, and more."
