London: Christopher Helm, 2003. Quarto, paperback, colour photographs.
This new county avifauna looks at the birdlife of Suffolk - one of the most important birding counties in England. Suffolk is relatively underdeveloped, with nationally important wetlands and heathlands, and a long, varied coastline. It is here that the Avocet first returned to breed after a lengthy absence from the British Isles, and it is here that the RSPB opened their spectacular flagship reserve, Minsmere. As well as supporting a superb range of breeding and wintering species, Suffolk has an impressive record for attracting rarities. This book looks at Suffolk's history, geology, climate and ecology, and examines in detail the status of every species on the Suffolk list. It will be an essential reference for all birders who live in or visit Suffolk.
