About this book

Four years after the publication of The Orkney Book of Birds, the publisher is delighted to present a practical and new edition specifically designed for your pocket. Nothing from the original book has been left out, indeed Orkney's world of birds changes constantly and the publisher has been able to add updates.

The Orkney Book of Birds (Pocket Edition) is a totally unique volume that focuses solely on almost 200 birds you are most likely to find in Orkney and offers outstanding watercolours of each species in an instantly recognisable island setting. Tim Dean and Tracy Hall both live in the islands and have devoted several years to compiling The Orkney Book of Birds.

Tim has spent a lifetime in ornithology and gives a detailed and expert commentary of each bird: when and where you might see them in the islands; how easy or difficult they are to find; and what local name Orcadians might have for them. Tracy created 50 stunning original plates which have now been separated to depict 178 Orkney localities in which she has reproduced each bird in meticulous detail to aid identification.

The Orkney Book of Birds (Pocket Edition) provides answers to the What? Why? Where? and When? of bird watching in the county.
