Heligoland an Ornithological Observatory

Heligoland an Ornithological Observatory

Subtitled Heligoland as an Ornithological Observatory 'The Result of Fifty Years work', Heinrich Gatke's classic book was published in 1895 by David Douglas of Edinburgh.Here is an extract;
Red-throated Pipit
' I obtained the first example of this pipit on the island on the 28th of September 1854, and the second on the 20th of September 1857.Soon after, Claus Aeukens learned its call-note, and in consequence managed to see, and frequently shoot, one or other of these birds almost regularly every autumn.In 1884 they occured here in unexampled frequency; from the 15th to the 30th of September thirteen examples were seen, and for the most part shot, on some days as many as three examples.'
