Climatic Atlas published

The new Climatic Atlas of European Breeding Birds is published today. One hopes that when my copy arrives it will be an interesting read - (accurately) predicting what new bird species will be added and lost to the British list. For those of you interested the RSPB has a pdf download of a small booklet on the subject (and the book). See:
The maps above, even at this scale, show the current and late 21st century predicted range of Dartford Warbler - so we should start to see a lot more over the next few years. Obviously there will be other additions, serin for instance, but equally there will be declines, as the southern boundaries of species more northwards.
I'll post more info when my copy from Spain arrives.
