London: T & A D Poyser, 2005. Octavo, dustwrapper, text illustrations, colour photographs.
Since 1980, a total of 72 bird species have been found for the first time in Britain. This new book is the successor to Birds new to Britain and Ireland by Sharrock and Grant, 1982 [stock id 2889] which covered the new birds discovered between 1958 and 1980. The accounts of each new bird's finder are reproduced from their original sources (mainly from British Birds and Birding World). Fascinating reading for everyone who has an interest in migration and vagrancy, has made the journey to see any of the birds concerned, or has ever dreamed of finding a 'first' of their own.
