Birds New to Britain: 1980-2004
Adrian Pitches & Tim Cleeves
Captures the extraordinary excitement of the most rare and coveted birding experience - spotting a 'first'. Since 1980, a total of 76 bird species have been found for the first time in Britain. Each individual, although hopelessly lost and quite possibly doomed, has brought birding celebrity for its finder, and a swarm of admirers to view the bird itself. The accounts of each new bird's finder are reproduced from their original sources. These are complemented with new commentaries about birds, and a series of annual reviews from invited contributors. 344 pages.
