Because of its unique position on the east coast, more birds are found in Norfolk than in other parts of Britain. Its diversity of habitats attracts and shelters a range of breeding species, and its coastline facing the North Sea ensures a wealth of migrant visitors. This book has been written by a team of almost 40 experts from within the country. Introductory chapters cover the history of ornithology in Norfolk and its birding personalities; conservation; ringing; migration; and geography. The bulk of the book comprises the systematic list which details the status and distribution of every species recorded in Norfolk.
