Rare Birds Day by Day creates a fascinating look at the world of scarce and rare birds found in Britain and Ireland. Written by well known and experienced British birders and rare bird finders, this edition is particularly valuable to anyone with an interest in finding and watching rare migrant and vagrant species. The book proves a valuable and fun tool for the keenest rarity hunters, while transforming them into rare bird predictors. This is a unique way of listing British rare bird records, as it documents by date of occurrence rather than by type of species. Spanning 35 years of data collection, Rare Birds Day by Day is further enlivened with illustrations by Dave Nurney. Key Features * Covers 282 rare species and sub-species found in Britain and Ireland * Lists some 20,000 individual rare bird records in diary style * Documents bird findings between 1958 and 1994.
