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.
