Fuller’s book would not have been possible but for the nationwide cooperative
endeavour by amateur and professional ornithologists, naturalists and
conservationists which led to the British Trust for Ornithology’s Register of
Ornithological Sites, sponsored by the Nature Conservancy Council.
Hitherto, few books have dealt primarily with bird habitats but the subject is
of urgent importance now that exploitation of the environment has left few
corners of Britain untouched or unthreatened. Even so, the book is much more
than timely, it also extends the reader’s interest to an area of bird study
that has, perhaps, been too little considered.
The book describes all the main habitat types, the structure and composition of
bird communities, and reviews bird sites and their distribution throughout
Britain. For the birdwatcher and all involved with conservation, this is
stimulating reading and an essential reference.
The text is supported by more than 100 diagrams and maps, and over 50
photographs; in addition there are 53 superbly evocative drawings by Donald
Jacket illustrations by Donald Watson
