The Birds of Berkshire is the first authoritative account of Berkshire's birds and provides a comprehensive summary of the records of every species observed in the county since records began. It brings together all the available information on the birds of the county, much of which has previously been available only in club records, private notes and historical sources long since out of print. The book contains chapters on the history of bird recording in Berkshire and on its physical geography, habitats and climate, a featue of which is tetrad-based distribution maps of each habitat type. The bulk of the book comprises detailed accounts of the current and former status of 313 species recorded in the county and includes:
The Birds of Berkshire also features a unique collection of 316 illustrations by Britain's leading bird artists, covering each of the species recorded.
A few copies are still available from the Secretary for £5 to members and £10 to non-members.
