Written to update the British Ornithologists' Union's last full Checklist, this volume first summarizes developments since 1971, including species that have become extinct as breeding birds, critical declines following changes in land use, recoveries, and changes in bird taxonomy. It then provides an up-to-date account of the status of all birds in Britain, Ireland and the Isle of Man. Altogether, the book lists over 580 species, with Latin and common names and concise details of taxonomy, distribution and status.
