Somerset Atlas of Breeding and Wintering Birds 2007-2012

The new Atlas was published at the end of November 2014. It is an SOS/BTO joint project that ran concurrently with the national Atlas project and is the first Atlas of bird distribution within the county. It is a superb production, with habitat photos and maps generally showing breeding and winter distributions down to the 2km square level. If you are an SOS member or bird the County regularly, this is an invaluable publication.
