Other features include:
BTO website ...there are othersite guides available to the county, but this one is particularly accessible, handily sized, with really clear maps and site descriptions.
Kevin Lane (British Birds) ...this book provides a wealth of birding-related information about the county and would I’m sure prove invaluable for both holidaying birders and day visitors to this popular county. Even though, as a resident of Dorset, I’m familiar with the majority of the sites treated, reading this book has given me a few ideas of new locations to try out in the coming year.
Fatbirder website ...it’s no secret that I am a fan of Buckingham Press’s series of ‘Where to Watch’ guides. Judged away from all other guides they are excellent, but put them alongside others and they always stand taller with good, accurate, relevant information and with maps well and attractively presented.
It happens that Dorset was a county I spent a lot of time in during the 1990s and early naughties and I know many of the sites mentioned, some very well indeed. In fact there are a couple where, in my day, I never saw another birder, clearly this has changed or is about to. The coverage is not just wide but is as deep as the format allows so my congratulations extend to the author. If I were a year-lister in Dorset or even an occasional visitor to the area I’d be hoping Santa pops a copy in my stocking!
