Book Description

This was claimed to be the first work on the birds of Oxfordshire in a collected and accessible form, and as such is based on the research of the author along with his friends & correspondents. Owing to the diversity of habitat within the county many species were recorded & described (eg the black-winged stilt, the dotterel) but sadly quite a few are no longer visitors to the county today or even the UK.
