  • Fantastic rare diver double bill - full accounts of Yorkshire's Pacific and Lincolnshire's White-billed
  • The lost plover - Not so long ago, breeding Kentish Plovers scurried around the shingle beaches of their eponymous county and elsewhere in Southern England. Sadly now lost as a breeder, the species still appears as a very scarce passage migrant, but is much better known in southern Europe. David Callahan profiles a plover with an intriguing history and recent taxonomic twist.
  • Censusing the birds - The British Trust for Ornithology has been organising bird survey sfor many years and these have provided much essential knowledge to help monitor our bird populations and help conserve them. The charity's Sarah Harris tells us about new developments this year and how you can take part as a 'citizen scientist'.
  • Sun, sea and endemics - It may be best known as a popular tourist destination, but Tenerife in the Canary Islands is home to a number of endemic birds and thousands of other creatures and plants found nowhere else in the world. With the spectacular volcano of Mount Teide, subtropical laurel forest and dry woodland and pines, its diverse habitats merit full exploration. James Lowen is your guide.
