About the Author

British Birds is a monthly magazine for everyone interested in the birds of the Western Palearctic (and beyond). Founded in 1907 and published continuously since then, it incorporates a range of peer-reviewed material on subjects such as bird behaviour, conservation, distribution, ecology, identification, movements, status and taxonomy, as well as the latest ornithological news and book reviews. It aspires to be the bird journal of record in Britain and a key characteristic is its aim to interpret scientific research on birds in an easily accessible way. British Birds also has its own charitable trust - the British Birds Charitable Trust - that makes annual grants to a range of ornithological and conservation projects; it will be donating all profits from the sale of this book to conservation work in the UK Overseas Territories. Roger Riddington has been the Editor of British Birds since 2001. The RSPB is the largest nature conservation charity in the UK; with the support of over a million members and partner organisations, the RSPB strives to protect and restore our precious natural world. Originally established in 1889, the RSPB has worked with the UK Overseas Territories for more than 20 years to help local non-governmental organisations and communities protect their internationally significant wildlife. Some of the projects they have collaborated on include combating illegal bird-killing in the Cyprus Sovereign Base Areas, eradicating rats from World Heritage Sites to protect ground-nesting seabirds, and supporting the designation of large-scale Marine Protected Areas in their rich waters. Today, the RSPB's Overseas Territories team is focused on saving species found in the territories from extinction, helping to protect their most valuable natural sites both above and below water, ensuring that laws and polices safeguard their environments, and sharing their expertise to support the development of strong, sustainable and locally led territory conservation organisations.

Reviews
