I’m really lucky to live in the beautiful county of Gloucestershire. The South West is a relatively undeveloped region of England, with some of the finest and most extensive ancient woodlands in the country. As well as oak and beech woodlands, we have a wonderful range of habitats: estuary, arable, wetlands and limestone grassland, all filled with the appropriate wildlife. That means there are wonderful opportunities for birdwatching and sketching all the year round - and a fantastic variety of birdlife.

"The Birds of Gloucestershire" gives details of all the birds that have ever been seen in the county. The book has a massive 450 pages and includes:-

- A foreword by HRH the Prince of Wales

- An introduction to Gloucestershire and its birds

- A brief history of ornithology and birdwatching in Gloucestershire

- Summaries of county results from ongoing surveys

- Accounts of all the bird species recorded in the county (about 330 in total). Well over 100 species have a double-page spread, including maps showing where they were found during the national atlas survey work and at what density, and for others there is information such as the most likely time of year to see migrants and the places to which birds ringed in the county have travelled. The book is packed with graphs and tables, and for rare visitors, all sightings in the county are listed.

The book is published by Liverpool University Press and was launched at the 'Nature in Art' gallery at Twigworth near Gloucester on 16 November 2013. An exhibition and sale of some of the artwork is on at Nature in Art 12 November 15 December. A percentage of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, and royalties from the book will be used for conservation in the county.
