As Essex birders we are fortunate to have a recent and comprehensive book on the birds of our county. Published in 2007 by Helm and running to over 600 pages, it is the first place to look when you want to find out about the status of any bird in Essex.
The Birds of Essex analyses and summarises all the data collated and documented over the last 200 years, with individual accounts providing an up-to-date status report on each species and its patterns of occurrence within Essex. The superb line drawings and photographs that illustrate the book are all contributed by talented local artists and photographers.
