Charles Gawen wrote the only known field Journal account of Shropshire’s birds in the nineteenth century. This ornithological field Journal contains many stories of the birds he encountered. It was largely written at Chetwynd Park and additionally the Scilly Isles, Wiltshire and Somerset.
This book contains Volume II, of the Journal covering 1888 – 1911.
We hope in future Volume I will come to light.
The book (Histo Item 79.2) will be available for download from 14 January 2019.
