Ornithological journals, magazines and reports - new home needed


Like many birders I am an avid collector of books and periodicals, and over several decades have acquired a sizeable reference library. It's actually now outgrown the available space, so having offloaded some books a few years back I'm now reluctantly doing the same with some of my journals, magazines and reports.

There are hundreds that need a new home. including many issues of Ibis (British Ornithologists’ Union), Bulletin of the British Ornithologists’ Club and Forktail (Oriental Bird Club), as well as Birding (American Birding Association), British Wildlife, Birding Scotland, Scottish Bird News (Scottish Ornithologists’ Club), Welsh Birds (Welsh Ornithological Society), Nos Oiseaux (Switzerland), Dansk Ornitologisk Forenings Tidsskrift (Denmark) and a few spare copies of British Birds, Birding World, Limicola, North American Birds and others. This collection would be ideal for an institution, bird club or even an individual with plenty of shelf space and a quest for ornithological knowledge.

Most important is that these treasured publications go to a good home, so they are available free to a registered charity, or alternatively in exchange for a charitable donation to my nominated charity, the World Land Trust (minimum £50, the highest received by 31 October 2016 secures). Whoever becomes the lucky new owner will need to collect them from north London - please email me on dominic [dot] mitchell [at] birdwatch [dot] co [uk] if you are interested.
