The Birds Of Spurn- (Friends of Spurn reduced price)

£47.50 Inc P&P

Andy Roadhouse has spent 8 years researching and writing ‘THE BIRDS OF SPURN’. It is the first definitive work on the birds of the Spurn area including Easington with records dating back to the mid-19th Century. The book is hard backed with over 700 pages and full colour throughout.


All 387 species recorded in the Spurn area up to the end of 2014 are included and all are illustrated with either photographs or with artwork provided by some of the best bird artists in the country. There are plenty of statistics and graphs taken from 70 years worth of Observatory records. Also there are rarity accounts of certain rare finds, tales of great days birding, whether it be falls, good sea-watches or good vis-migging days.
The history of Spurn is covered along with the people who have made a difference and put Spurn firmly on the map. Descriptions of habitats and sites provide a useful site guide and a where and when to visit to make the most of your visit to Spurn. New detailed maps will enhance this even more.

The book is designed as a publication that will never go out of date, as any FRIEND OF SPURN BIRD OBSERVATORY who purchases the book will receive an annual updated list by email to print off that will include new species, new record counts, early/late dates, ringing totals etc. and will neatly fit into a separate folder that is integral with the publication itself. This is a new concept which we think has never been used before. It will without doubt be on all birdwatcher’s bookshelves for many years to come.

Price includes postage and packing to the UK. For other destinations please select the overseas price.
