Damaged paperback with damp wrinkles to front cover and first few pages. This is the Third Edition. Covers all birds of prey (diurnal raptors and owls) which occur regularly in Britain and Ireland. Introductory sections provide a history of raptor monitoring, background to survey techniques and design, and advice on good practice for fieldcraft. Detailed descriptions of survey methods for individual species follow, supplemented by photographic identification guides for raptor feathers and illustrations of the growth of raptor chicks for a range of species. The accompanying CD describes the use of raptor calls to aid species identification and interpret behavior.
