Fourth edition by George Green and Martin Cade.
Whether local or visiting, expert or novice, Where to watch birds in Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is the essential guide for any active birdwatcher in these counties. All significant birdwatching areas in the region are analysed under the headings 'Habitat', 'Timing', 'Access' and 'Calendar', providing all the information necessary to make the most of each and every trip, whatever the time of year. This substantially revised and expanded edition has new chapters, details of 'clusters' of sites easily accessible from particular holiday or population centres, additional information on access for the car-bound or disabled, as well as numerous examples of recent occurrences and significant status changes. Each site is described in terms of 'Habitat', 'Species', 'Access' and 'Birds', and the volume is illustrated throughout with line drawings and maps of each site. The manual seeks to enable birders to plan productive trips at any time of the year. 384 pages, 44 line illustrations, 60 maps.
