The observations of the authors and birdwatchers throughout the Province during the period January 1970 - December 1979 have been plotted on to maps which offer a precise record of the distribution of 530 species. For each of these birds there is also a short description of its world distribution and its local habitat, and a line illustration specially drawn for this book. Details of the bird's appearance, food, nesting, song, etc. are excluded as the Atlas is not intended as an identification manual.
The Atlas also contains a discussion of the background to the project and the methods used to assemble the data. The distributions of 100 rarer species are outlined and the book ends with a checklist of birds recorded in Natal and full scientific and English indexes.
Our stock consists of new copies with shelf wear and worn dust jackets.
