About this deal

It is internationally important for the bird population that is supports, such as bearded tit, sedge and reed warblers. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. b) The mute swans took "duck food" readily but it stayed away at 4 metres distance and appeared wary at all times. Provisional: Either: 1) member of exotic population that is breeding in the wild, self-propagating, and has persisted for multiple years, but not yet Naturalized; 2) rarity of uncertain provenance, with natural vagrancy or captive provenance both considered plausible.

Almost half a century later these have not yet been accepted into the Dorset avifauna and therefore risked being lost down the recording cracks.The park has three circular walks signposted, which are also suitable for wheelchair and buggy users as each of them consists of a compact gravel track similar to. It will also act as a valuable reference when future rarities turn up in the county, particularly since it contains a large number of photographs.

Given the increasing number of European Directives and the need for their implementation, it is vital that those who work in the Solent have the support of a strong scientific base. Our Solent nature reserves are comprised of a range of interesting and diverse habitats found along our coastal region. The woodland has since had a couple of name changes; Upper Hamble Country Park and now Manor Farm Country Park and is now a well used recreation facility. Another appendix lists ‘Records in parts of Hampshire transferred to Dorset in local government reorganisation in April 1974’. It continues to explore other, more recent developments in Hampshire’s birding scene and sets the background for the bulk of the book, which consists of accounts for 186 species, plus seven distinctive subspecies, all meeting the rarity conditions and approaching half of the county list of 389 species.The species accounts section ends with a series of appendices, some with intriguing headings such as ‘The ones that got away’ and ‘Suspect old records of interest’. Grew up In Hampshire, Sold stuff for a living when I left school, now Assistant Warden for PBO, Drink far too much tea, eat too much and don't ride my bike anywhere near often enough.

d) The flight feathers appeared pristine and complete with no evidence of being tagged, clipped or rubbed against an barriers.I grew up in the then village of Hedge End (now an ever expanding town) and spent my younger years birding the woodlands and part of the Hamble Estuary that were known as "The Cricket Camp". A short paperback describing species with black and white photographs and a map showing birdwatching sites. The more people know about the work we do and the importance of looking after birds of prey, then the greater chance we have of protecting them. Hampshire has a rich ornithological history which can be traced back to the late 18th century when Gilbert White wrote The Natural History of Selborne. Blashford Lakes nature reserve has a variety of habitats including ancient woodland, a New Forest stream and alder and willow carr woodland which surround a complex of flooded former gravel working.

This is a circular walk in the New Forest in Hampshire passing through heathland on the outskirts of the forest to the Canadian War Memorial and back again.

While this species doesn't exactly hover it can hang pretty steadily in a headwind, and no other British raptor has a forked tail so it seems very likely this is what you saw.
