A guide to the best birding sites in the northwestern counties of Cumbria, Lancashire and Cheshire. This area holds some of the finest upland sites in England, as well as some superb wetlands including Morecambe Bay which holds the largest wader roost in the country. The western coast of Northern England has a good record for attracting Nearctic vagrants, and the Lake District is the only place in England where Golden Eagles breed. The guide explores the best birding sites in the area, and several new sites have been added to this revised and updated third edition. Each site is described in terms of habitat, species, access and timing, and the volume is illustrated throughout with line drawings and maps of each site. This book seeks to enable birders plan productive trips at any time of the year.
For the third edition this book has been retitled from Where to Watch Birds in Cumbria, Lancashire & Cheshire (2nd edition) to Where to Watch Birds in North West England & the Isle of Man (3rd edition)
The authors are all experts in their field and experienced local birders.
