We have been approached by someone who has a sister who recently died. This person was a member of the RSPB and a very keen traveller to see and photograph wildlife, particularly birds. She had an extensive collection of bird books relating to those from many countries, from Antarctica, Falklands and Australia, to specific regions of Africa and India, as well as books on particular species and bird behaviour and migration.
The idea is that a local keen birder or society might have a similarly interested person who would like the collection or at least some of it as a gift.
The books have been collected and I will and have them for the March indoor meeting. If anyone would like to see them please attend on 14th March. If not able to do so and would be interested in what might be there please let us know. I will catalogue them and let you have the list. There must be over £2000.00 worth here so some bargain’s to be had. Donations to Devon Birds or RSPB as you choose.
