This new and novel way of presenting rare bird data will prove fascinating to anyone with an interest in finding and watching rare migrant and vagrant species. It covers 282 rare species and sub-species found in Britain and Ireland with over 20,000 individual records of rare birds listed day by day in diary style. Each individual bird appears on the date it was originally found with records listed in country order together with the finding site, number of birds and length of stay. It will prove a valuable and fun tool for the keenest rarity hunters, enabling them to use the book as a rare bird predictor, by closely following the birds found on each date over the 36 years covered by the book.
