Working for birds in Africa

Book Sale

Sale of Martin Woodcock’s library

The initial sale of Martin’s books has gone very well and has raised almost £700 for the Club so far. There are still a number of titles left and about 30 additional items that have been found since the AGM.

These books will be available to buy at the UK Birdfair at Rutland in August but we appreciate that some people may be interested in some of the titles but are unable to attend the Birdfair. If you are unable to attend the Birdfair but would like any of the titles please contact me at and I will let you know the price including postage and packing. Please note that we can only offer to mail items to UK addresses.

As you will appreciate from the list some of the books are very old titles and although Martin looked after them well some are not in pristine conditions although many of the more recent titles are in excellent condition. Anyone buying a book by post will be responsible for the cost of returning the book if unsatisfied with the condition as the Club is unable to cover the cost of returns. Martin was very keen that his library should end up in the possession of people with a real interest in African ornithology so we hope that most of the books will be purchased by ABC members.
