Dorset has much to offer birds and birdwatchers; with few large towns and a wealth of unspoilt countryside, the bird fauna of the county is rich, with many open-country and woodland species. This book presents a comprehensive overview of the status of every species recorded in Dorset. Each account covers distribution and population trends, patterns in habitat use, and conservation; while introductory chapters outline the county's climate, vegetation, ecology and history of land use, and the history of Dorset ornithology.
