About this book

This book charts the history and birdlife of Second World War anti-aircraft artillery range Weybourne Camp in Norfolk. It was inspired by the 289 bird species recorded at the site since the author first visited when he took a job as a GP at Sheringham in 1972. Nearly 24,000 birds of 188 species have been ringed on the 300 acre camp, which is now home to the Muckleburgh Collection military museum. The book, which opens with a chapter by Muckleburgh Collection owner Sir Michael Savory, features nearly 40 of the author's own photographs and includes information on the large variety of birds recorded on the camp and nearby Muckleburgh Hill.

Part of the proceeds will go to Love For Leo, a charity for children in Norfolk and Suffolk with cerebral palsy.

Media reviews

"[...] This book, I imagine, will appeal to those birders who live in Norfolk or are frequent visitors to the famous coastline. However, military historians and geologists will learn much from the book too. The chapters are interspersed with historic photos of Weybourne and surrounding area together with shots of birds in the field and in the hand, mostly of scarce or rare birds. This work is likely to prove to be of historic value in the years ahead. We, as birders, will look back on works like this and thank the devotees of ‘patch’ recording for allowing us to glimpse the past and compare it to how we see things today!"
– Jeff Baker, BTO book reviews
