About this book

This is an avifauna for the Isles of Scilly - one of the most popular and exciting birding sites in the whole of Britain. The annual October pilgrimage to Scilly is a fixed point on many birders' calendars, and these tiny islands have hosted a considerable proportion of extreme rarities for Britain. Also includes considerable information on Scilly's resident and commoner migrant species.
