Birds in Scotland Valerie M. Thom The species accounts, the backbone of the book, review the period but include, where practicable, records of rarities and details of counts up to the spring of The Skuas Robert W Furness Many birdwatchers may never have seen a skua; those who have will most probably have vivid memories of one or other species flying powerfully past a headland, or twisting and diving in pursuit of its piratical intentions towards a food-laden seabird - or, perhaps more memorably still, of themselves taking evasive action from the power-diving irate skua whose territory they have unwisely invaded.

This book is a processed tree, a tree which was once part of a habitat, and which has now provided paper for about 30 books of this size. Did these pages once form part of a British conifer plantation or part of a Scandinavian or American forest? Perhaps they were once branches supporting a Goshawk nest. Did a Three-toed Woodpecker pass through them or was there once a male Spruce Grouse displaying below them? These flights of fancy signal our intention to discuss timber production both as an industry and as an influence on the environment.
