Stronsay, a most beautiful island in the north of Orkney has recently arrived to the fore of British Ornithology with a considerable amount of rare bird sightings including five species new to Orkney. Many of these have come from the recently developed private Bird Reserve owned and run by the author of this book.

The Reserve, opened in 1989 and specifically designed to attract rare migrant species is well-known throughout the UK and is just about the ultimate example of a 'local patch'!

Many birdwatchers are now turning to watching their own 'local patches', a trend which can only be good for both Ornithology and conservation in general.

Written and illustrated by John Holloway, published in 1995.
