Literature

"Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.” — Samuel Johnson (1775)"

We have endeavoured to make as much information about the birds available in one place - both formal peer-reviewed articles and reports and popular media including newspaper and magazine articles. Please feel free to browse through the titles in the list below and where possible we have made a pdf or web link available. Please help us keep this up-to-date with any other article you know of that we may have left off or that are new. 
 
Being updated all the time, so if you know of a link we missing, please forward it on to us.
