Amazon seem to have the hardback dated 7Jan and the softback dated 4 Mar publication at the moment. where do i get the new hardback one from?
Lady Amherst's Pheasant is no longer considered to have a self-sustaining population in Britain, and was therefore reassigned (in 2005) from Category C1 to new Category C6 [Former naturalized species – species formerly placed in C1 whose naturalized populations are either no longer self-sustaining or are considered extinct].If I understand previous comments correctly, Lady Amherst's Pheasant no longer breeds in England and the map could be dropped. Correct?
This copy has ISBN:978 0 00 726726 2 hardback

This probably means something to someone in publishing.
The Amazon price changes every time I look.
...so there's a strong case for deleting it from the guide altogether, perhaps replacing it with full coverage of the more deserving Reeves's Pheasant...?Lady Amherst's Pheasant is no longer considered to have a self-sustaining population in Britain...
For Greater Flamingo I read that it 'winters in Oued Righ Valley in NE Algeria'. I am afraid I cannot find this locality. It is not listed in Isenmann & Moali (2000) either.
Yes. The lowest number in the string indicates the printing of the book. So, the "2" means that you have purchased the second printing of the second edition. Many of the typos in the first edition will have been corrected. When the third printing of the book comes out, the lowest number in the string will be "3" and hopefully all the mistakes will have been corrected.
or does the 2 refer to second edition as opposed to second printing of the second edition?
Oued Righ (or Oued el Righ, Oued R'hir dependent on transcription) is an oasis complex localised some 207 to the south of town of Biskra (you can found this on the map).
It is not in Google Earth, Encarta World Atlas or in Times Atlas of the World. .
My understanding also is that the Black-headed Munia population established in Portugal represents Lonchura atricapilla Chestnut Munia, which has chestnut rather than white underparts – split from L malacca Tricolored Munia by, eg, IOC, BLI, Cornell/Clements, Lynx/IBC, AOU, China OS....there is a problem in the description of the Black headed Munia Lonchura atricapilla, the description given it´s for Lonchura malacca (both species were split) but the species that occur in Portugal is the Lonchura atricapilla and not the L. Malacca, so the description of the adult male is wrong...
