The Ancient Murrelet

The Ancient Murrelet

Gaston, Jones

The Ancient Murrelet and its three congeners are unique amongst seabirds in that their young are entirely precocial, leaving the nest as soon as they hatch to grow up at sea. Tony Gaston has carried out the only detailed study of the bird, in the fine mature coastal forests of the Queen Charlotte Islands. His work has revealed their complex social behaviour, the song behaviour of the males and the species' response to the variety of predators which they face : from Peregrines to Deer Mice. 249 pages.

Birdwatcher's Dictionary

Peter Weaver

The author defines more than 1100 words and terms in this illustrated dictionary for the birdwatcher. Its attraction for the relative novice is obvious but it is equally directed to experienced birdwatchers who will find succinct definitions of terms that are new to them and of others that they have understood none too well. 160 pages.

Natural History of Cape Clear Island

Natural History of Cape Clear Island

J.T.R. Sharrock, Robert Gillmor

Cape Clear Island, the most southerly point of Ireland apart from the nearby Fastnet Rock, has been the site of a bird observatary since 1959. This account of the island, its flora and fauna, its inhabitants and history, is weighted in favour of the birds but this is, perhaps, inevitable since the island offers so much of exceptional ornithological interest. Even so, a glance at the book's contents will show the wide range covered - from Killer Whales to the rare Kerry Slug and the Lusitanian flora that south-west Ireland shares with Iberia. Anyone with a general interest in natural history will find chapters an a variety of topics, each written by an acknowledged expert. The authors' enthusiasm for their subjects is always apparent; some sections are light-hearted but scientific accuracy is always maintained. 208 pages. More details…

Many birdwatchers may never have seen a skua; those who have will most probably have vivid memories of one or other species flying powerfully past a headland, or twisting and diving in pursuit of its piratical intentions towards a food-laden seabird - or, perhaps more memorably still, of themselves taking evasive action from the power-diving irate skua whose territory they have unwisely invaded. 368 pages.
