New Naturalist # 123. Terns provides a much-anticipated overview of these fascinating birds. Terns are small seabirds that are commonly seen along coastlines and estuaries in the summer months - their graceful flight and command of the air are among the most attractive features of the coastal experience. In this New Naturalist volume, David Cabot and Ian Nisbet draw on a wealth of new information and research, providing a comprehensive natural history of terns. Covering the history of terns in Britain and Ireland, the authors focus on migrations, food and feeding ecology as well as breeding biology. Perhaps most importantly, they highlight recent conservation issues and prospects, and what this means for the future of terns. Also available in paperback [stock id 35326].
