Merlins of the South-east Yorkshire Dales - Peter M Wright

Merlins of the South-easy Yorkshire Dales - Peter M Wright - MED-B003

  Description : This new book documents a twenty-year study of the Merlin Falco columbarius in the south-eastern part of the Yorkshire Dales.  The author, Peter Wright, is a former Head Ranger of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and has a lifelong interest in Britain’s smallest falcon.

‘Merlins of the South-east Yorkshire Dales’ describes the species’ moorland habitat, its behaviour during each stage of the breeding cycle and its productivity.  It also describes how adult birds were trapped and ringed in order to determine their recruitment into the population, their fidelity to nesting sites and their post-breeding dispersal.


Illustrated with 26 full colour photographs, this book includes numerous tables, figures and maps for those requiring specialised information and is written in a style which should also appeal to those with a more general interest in the Merlin.

Specification : ISBN 095512770X - Soft Back 100 pages,  Size 240 x 170 mm.
