Bird Atlas 2007-11: The Breeding and Wintering Birds of Britain and Ireland
Bird Atlas 2007-2011 is the definitive statement on breeding and winter bird distributions in Britain and Ireland. It builds on previous atlases (1968-1972 Breeding Atlas, 1981-1984 Winter Atlas, 1988-1991 Breeding Atlas) to show how the fortunes of the birds of Britain and Ireland have changed over the last 40 years.
Bird Atlas 2007-2011 presents over 1300 detailed maps for nearly 300 species, showing where each breeds and winters, where they are most and least abundant and where status is changing. The species accounts and chapters bring together the latest scientific findings to explain these patterns and highlight the major issues facing our changing bird faunas.
- The most complete and comprehensive overview of bird distribution and change in Britain and Ireland
- Over 1300 maps describe patterns of distribution, abundance and change for nearly 300 species in one hardback volume
