A guide to birdwatching in the Thames Valley and all the counties crossed by the Chilterns (Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire). This region includes some of England's best inland reservoirs and other wetland sites, as well as extensive areas of ancient woodland, and traditionally-managed farmland. The volume contains site accounts, plans, maps, lists of birds in the region and advice on planning birdwatching trips.
The authors are both keen birders who have long been active in this region. Brian Clews has published a monthly bulletin on the birds of Berkshire for the last 15 years. Paul Trodd is based in Bedfordshire.
