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.

As a guide price Birds of the Spurn Peninsula can be bought through Amazon as used copies with prices ranging from £25, £40 or even £94 with all book dealers charging £2.80 post & packaging.  Abe Books is offering it at £40 + £3.75 shipping charge.

Birds of Spurn A Comprehensive Checklist is offered via Amazon as a used copy for £13.45 + £2.80 p&p.

If anyone is interested in acquiring these books then please get in touch via execsec@thmcf.org  When making contact to make an offer, please bear in mind the guide prices provided. 

Proceeds from the sale will be donated to a conservation organisation (details available to purchase on request).
