Halliday W. The book of migratory birds. Met with on Holy Island and the Northumbrian coast, to which is added descriptive accounts of wild fowling on the mud flats, with notes on the general natural history of this district
London: John Ouseley, Ltd, 1909. — 238 p.It has been suggested by naturalists and wild fowlers who have from time to time visited this part of England, that I should write a book of my experiences respecting observations of the migratory feathered tribe. Of the bigger birds, which habitually visit the place from early September to the end of March, I have observed more than thirty distinct species, hence the many visits paid by wild fowlers during the winter. Some rare specimens are met with, and it seems somewhat incredible that over one hundred varieties of the winged tribe have been noted on this island, great and small. This remark applies equally well to the whole stretch of the Northumbrian coast — with few exceptions — from the Tyne to the Tweed and Firth of Forth.
