The chapters are as follows.



The reasons behind writing the book, and what we hope to achieve.

Times Gone By: We look back at key people, events and turning points in the evolution of the birding scene on Scilly.

Breeding Birds: Details on all the past & present breeding species of Scilly.

Routes to Scilly: Reviews migration and accidental routes that explain how visiting birds arrive at the archipelago.

Birding Year: Offers a month-by-month account of species likely to be present and roughly where on the islands to look for them.

Big Year-List 2002: A month-by-month account that relives the record breaking 2002 year-list.

Mega-Finds: Presents some awesome finders' accounts for a selection of Scilly's genuine mega-birds. The extreme emotions involved when rare bird finders realise their ultimate dream on Scilly are graphically described.

The Scilly List: Reviews the growth and its rate of change of the list of birds seen on Scilly, up to and including 2005.

Systematic List: Provides a succinct overview of the status and occurrence of all species and sub-species ever reliably recorded on the islands.

Check List: Recaps the Systematic List in a complete list of species and sub-species in tabular form with columns set aside for the reader to keep their own lists.

Appendices: Firsts for Britain that have occurred on Scilly, Records not Submitted or Pended, & Interesting Ringing Recoveries.
