Ringed Plover by Julian Bhalerao
The Birds of Norfolk

The Birds of Norfolk

Moss Taylor, Michael Seago, Peter Allard & Don Dorling

Because of its unique position on the east coast, more birds are found in Norfolk than in other parts of Britain. Its diversity of habitats attracts and shelters a wide range of breeding species, and its coastline facing the North Sea ensures a wealth of migrant visitors. Norfolk probably also attracts more visiting birdwatchers than any other county.

Written by a team of almost forty experts from within the county. Introductory chapters cover the history of ornithology in Norfolk and its birding personalities; conservation; ringing; migration; and geography. The bulk of the book comprises the systematic list which comprehensively details the status and distribution of every species recorded in Norfolk. Thirty two colour plates of habitats and birds complement the text and the systematic section includes many delightful vignettes by Richard Richardson and other artists who were/are resident in Norfolk. This will surely become the standard reference for many years to come. 552 pages.
