Welcome to

Calluna Books

Calluna Books specialise in buying/selling out of print natural history books online, through a catalogue and by attending selected events and fairs. I have been trading since 1997 and I am now based in (Northumberland) - callers are welcome by appointment. 

I have a stock of over 3500 titles of books, journals and reports that cover a wide range of natural history subject areas including birds, mammals, reptiles, floras, invertebrates, ecology, wildlife art and books on the general natural history of the UK and worldwide. 

Please check out my stock list and contact me if you would like to place an order, offer books or if you have any questions.

Welcome to

Talks & Overseas Guiding

After 32 years living in Dorset, I have relocated to Northumberland and my local guiding service in the county has come to an end. 

The move has given me the opportunity to review my activities - Calluna Books will continue dealing in secondhand natural history books and over the coming months I will be considering my ownership and the future of the Birdwatcher's Yearbook. 

I will also continue to offer Illustrated Wildlife Talks (in person / on zoom) and in 2024 will be leading spring tours to Lesvos and Spain for Birdfinders.

At the end of October 2023 I completed the purchase of a house in Northumberland and will be relocating there. 

I am planning to move between Dorset / Northumberland for a while to get the house ready to move permanently. Until then, Calluna Books & The Birdwatcher's Yearbook will continue to operate from Dorset so any orders or queries should be directed via the contacts page - you should receive a response fairly quickly. There may, from time to time, be a short delay to fulfil secondhand book orders (if so, this will be advised). Orders of the Yearbook will continue to be dispatched within 2-3 working days. 


The Birdwatcher's Yearbook 2024 (44th edition) - NOW AVAILABLE 


The cover price is £24.00 but is offered here for £22.00 including 2nd class postage (1st class/overseas postage rates are also available).
