A Field Guide to Monitoring Nests is the first BTO-published book to feature detailed nest finding methods for individual species. Its combination of concise notes and quick-reference facts and figures, together with expert advice and chapters on the basics, makes it an ideal field companion for both beginners and experienced nest recorders.
Written and illustrated by James Ferguson-Lees, Richard Castell and Dave Leech, this guide contains a wealth of information for 145 British and Irish species, together with introductory sections on nest-monitoring techniques, nest identification, legislation, the BTO Nest Record Scheme and nest-finding skills.
It is intended as an aid to those involved in monitoring nests for research and conservation purposes, and does not contain nest-monitoring information for birds on Schedule 1 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
Paperback, 272 pages.
