Although published in 1990, this book by John Marchant, Robert Hudson, Steve Carter and Phil Whittington still provides a fascinating insight into the changing fortunes of Britain's bird populations from the early 1960s through into the 1980s.
It brings together the results of monitoring schemes organised by BTO and covers 164 species, with detailed graphs of population changes over the period. These changes are discussed in relation to factors such as climate, habitat and forestry/agriculture, and the implications for conservation are emphasised.
