Price: £15.00

Quantity: 1 available


First reprint, 1976. Illustrated, large octavo, pp xxii, 391, extremely clean internally, green cloth in very good condition. The dustwrapper is not price-clipped, it is slightly faded on the spine, otherwise very good with the publisher's laminated cover. [This study of British woodlands - both coniferous and broadleaved, natural and planted - and their varied bird life is perhaps one of the most engaging books to appear in this series. Simms first considers the general environment of trees - the background to any study of woodland birds - and the origins and history of the British and Irish woodlands and their birds from Pliocene times to the present day. He then considers the nature of a ‘woodland bird’; the bird communities supported by the most important tree species; types of woodland or marginal habitats; problems of woodland bird populations and changing environment; the role of woodland bird song and the place of birds in modern forestry. He concludes with an invaluable species-by-species account of British woodland birds, giving details, for each, of its British and European distribution and of its status and habitats within the British Isles. It is a book of absorbing interest to bird-watchers throughout the country.]
