Birds on the Spurn Peninsula &c.

January 8, 2020

Spurn Point in Yorkshire is, and has been since ‘Adam was a lad’ regarded as a mecca for birders, ornithologists, birdwatchers or a whole host of other terms used to describe their activities or in many cases passions.

It almost goes without saying that it has an exceptionally well documented history of a wide range of natural history disciplines, not least birds.

Both books illustrated below will be well known to Spurn aficionados.  If you haven’t already got a copy then now is your chance to acquire one or other, or both.

Both books are in excellent condition.
