Eric Dempsey is mad about birds. In fact, they have changed his whole life. Having once been gainfully employed by a semi-state company in a secure, pensionable job, he gave it all up to dedicate his life to birdwatching. In this remarkable memoir, Eric tells us of his love of nature from his earliest days and how it has influenced him throughout his life, inspiring many adventures. In doing so, he provides a snapshot of growing up in Dublin in the ’60s and ’70s. Peppered with stories that are both hilarious and poignant, such as instructing his parents not to die in autumn (it’s the best time for birdwatching) and going on safari to fulfil the dream of a friend who had passed away, this book will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between. Some people spend all their lives dreaming of following their passion; Eric Dempsey’s memoir reveals a life all the more rewarding for doing so.

Ireland's Wildlife Year is a superbly illustrated survey of the four seasons in the Irish natural environment. It traces the development of plants and trees, the movements of birds and animals and the changing face of the Irish landscape over one calendar year. There is nothing understated about the seasonal changes in Ireland. This book, driven by the stunning nature photography of Billy Clarke, Eric Dempsey and Carsten Krieger, tracks those changes as they affect plants, trees and shrubs, bird and animal life, the general landscape and the natural environment. Contributors are outstanding experts in their fields. Eric Dempsey writes about birds; Declan Doogue about flora; and Professor Tom Hayden of UCD about fauna.

This book by a trio of rare-bird specialists is a successor to two earlier works (long out of print), Scarce Migrant Birds in Britain and Ireland (Sharrock 1974 and Rare Birds in Britain and Ireland (Sharrock 1976). It unifies both of the earlier books and updates them, adding more than 80 species to the previous total.The authors have analysed and considered some 45,000 records of scarce and rare birds in Britain and Ireland for the period 1958-85. Extreme rarities outside the period are also listed. They have produced not only a book of great fascination for those who delight in rarities for their own sake, but one that offers valuable information on changing patterns of arrival which may indicate changes of status of these birds within their breeding range.More than 300 species accounts are now included, most of them accompanied by histograms of weekly and seasonal occurrences, with maps showing distribution by counties in spring and autumn or at particular times of the year. For rarities with twelve or fewer occurrences during the period 1958-85, the place, date and other relevant information is given for each record.Every species is illustrated by a line drawing, more than 150 of them commissioned for this book, the remainder being selected from the two earlier works.

Dr J. T. R. Sharrock is uniquely placed to write about the rare birds of Britain and Ireland. He is a member of all three bodies which adjudicate on such records - honorary secretary of the British Ornithologists' Union's Records Committee and a member of both the British Birds Rarities Committee and the Irish Records Panel. He is already the author of a companion book which deals with a selection of the commoner rarities, Scarce Migrant Birds in Britain and Ireland (see back of this jacket for details). In this new, much fuller book the enormous task of collation of over 8000 records and their visual display as maps and histograms was carried out by Mrs E. M. Sharrock. The textual and visual analysis deals with 221 different species. Between them, the authors present a complete picture of rare birds in Britain and Ireland: * HOW MANY are seen? * WHEN do they occur? * HOW regularly do they come? * WHERE are they seen? There are line drawings of all 221 species by well-known bird artists: Robert Gillmor, P. J. Grant, R. A. Richardson, D. I. M. Wallace and lan Willis. Jacket design by Robert Gillmor

This companion volume to The Atlas of Wintering Birds in Britain and Ireland (see back flap) is derived from yearly surveys of breeding birds in Britain and Ireland during 1968-72, organised by the British Trust for Ornithology and the Irish Wildbird Conservancy. Each of the 3,862 10-km squares of Britain and Ireland was visited during the five years and the resulting records (over 285,000) are summarised in the maps. The full-page maps plot the known distribution of all but 11 of the 229 breeding species located during the survey period. Each map has an accompanying text which describes the species' habitat, the problems involved in proving breeding, the historical background to the species' range and any changes in its numbers. The probable reasons for these changes are discussed and an attempt made to assess the total number of birds for each species. "The book is a major triumph for the BTO and IWC and a fitting reward to the many thousands of field workers who made its compilation possible. It is an indispensable source of up-to-date information, a pleasure to read, a spur to thought and further enquiry, and, by no means least, a most elegant example of book production." Stanley Cramp, British Birds "This remarkable work is one of the most exciting ornithological achievements of the century ... the book is admirable in every way: it is beautifully produced, and charmingly illustrated with black and white vignettes on nearly every page of text. Above all, it provides an authoritative account of the present situation; in due course it will also serve as a standard against which to measure future changes. Excellent value and strongly recommended." G. L. A-W., Wildfowl News Jacket design by Robert Gillmor
