Birds New to Britain 1980-2004
Since 1980 a total of 75 bird species have been found for the first time in Britain. Each individual, although hopelessly lost and quite possibly doomed, has brought birding celebrity to its finder, and a swarm of admirers to view the bird itself. The accounts are reproduced from their original sources. These are complemented with new commentaries about the birds and a series of annual reviews from invited contributors.
