Suprisingly scarce. Appears to be a paperback original. "The Isles of Scilly, an archipelago off the southwestern coast of Cornwall, England, are a significant site of interest for naturalists, particularly ornithologists. The islands' mild climate and diverse habitats create an ideal environment for a wide variety of bird species. The archipelago is situated along major bird migration routes, making it a prime location for observing migratory species. Each year, birdwatchers are drawn to the islands to spot rare and unusual birds that stop over during their long journeys. The islands are known for sightings of rare vagrant species, which are often the subject of "twitches" (birdwatching expeditions). In addition to migratory birds, the Isles of Scilly support a range of resident bird species. These include seabirds such as gulls, cormorants, and shags, as well as land birds like the song thrush and various species of finches and sparrows. The islands are also home to the Scilly shrew, a subspecies of the lesser white-toothed shrew that is unique to the archipelago. The surrounding marine environment is rich in biodiversity, with seals and dolphins frequently spotted in the waters around the islands. The intertidal zone is home to a variety of marine invertebrates, and the clear waters offer excellent opportunities for snorkeling and diving. The islands' unique flora, influenced by the mild climate, includes a mix of native and exotic plants. Some of these, such as the dwarf pansy and orange birds-foot, are found nowhere else in Britain." Ornithology; Bird-watching. Birds. England.
