The State of the Nations’ Birds

The State of the Nations’ Birds by Chris Mead.
The state of the nations’ birds charts the fortunes of the British and Irish breeding birds over the 20th century, and predicts their prospects for the next decade. Using detailed information from many specialist sources Chris Mead analyses the varied fortunes of almost 250 species in an understandable fashion. Every breeding bird is included from the commonest (Wren with an estimated 9,900,000 pairs) to species that have bred very rarely (for example the elegant Black-winged Stilt and the colourful Bluethroat). This is the first time such an accessible and comprehensive summary has been brought together in one volume.
