This book is written specifically for the birdwatcher whose favourite birds are to be found on the shore. Our long and varied coastline offers many different habitats to a wide range of interesting species. This book provides more than just the basic information on bird names and distribution, it also gives the birdwatcher a fascinating insight into the lives of the birds which are being observed. Information about the various habitats is provided along with a section on identification and an important chapter on which species can be expected in each of the major habitats. The author also gives a lot of advice on effective note-taking, seawatching and seabird photography and emphasises the valuable contribution the amateur can make to surveys and censuses of birds on the coast.
