This is a county by county, place by place description of where to find the many bird species to be found in Wales. Includes a list of all species occuring in the principality, including the Latin, English and Welsh names of each. The book retains the proper, original counties, so as to keep in step with ornithologists' records. This is just as well, given that the counties and their boundaries have been changed more than once in the years since the publication of this book. Chapters include; Wales, a brief introduction; A brief history of Welsh ornithology; General information; Anglesey; Breconshire; Caernarvonshire; Cardiganshire; Denbighshire; Flintshire; Glamorgan; Merioneth; Monmouthshire; Montgomeryshire; Pembrokeshire; Radnorshire.
