    Notes 
    • Walpole-Bond, John (Arthington) (1878-1958). A history of Sussex birds. 3 volumes. London, H. F. & G. Witherby, 1938. Sussex has a distinguished history of ornithological publications. The present work is a kind of ne plus ultra for the ornithology of the county. It is quite unlike most regional ornithologies in that its emphasis is on the life histories of the local species. The author goes into the most extraordinary detail concerning aspects that are rarely covered in any book such as the materials used in construction of the nest by various species, the dates that they begin to sit, the length of the incubation period, clutch size, the varieties of vocalization etc. He claims to discuss about 450 species and sub-species of which he admits about 405 to the Sussex list. Records and opinions of others are meticulously referenced in foot-notes and carefully analyzed. Walpole-Bond, who is quite dogmatic, makes his points in fine precise prose.

    • John Atherton Walpole-Bond, known to his friends as 'Jock', 1878 - 1958. In May 1888 aged only 10 years old, young John Walpole-Bond began to record details of his nature rambles. By 1894, his passion for ornithology came to the fore and more serious and detailed records had begun, Bond would grow to have an outstanding knowledge of British birds. It was said that once he had heard a birds note or song, he would have it for life. E.M. Cawkell a friend of Jock's, described him as a tall and to an extent wild looking man, without an ounce of superfluous flesh and very strong. Bond had an obsession for collecting eggs including those of the Peregrine Falcon from the coastal cliffs in East Sussex, but despite a lifetime of what he himself described as 'unsurpassed looting' he collected 56 years of data on the Peregrine Falcon, detailed in his ornithological diaries which were a testament to his passion for birds. Bond produced several books during his life notably 'Field studies of some rarer British Birds' and his monumental three volumes on the 'History of Sussex Birds' of which only eight hundred sets were produced, he also produced a draft for a monograph of the Peregrine Falcon which tragically, due to the narrow mindedness of his contemporaries, some of whom chose to criticize his style of writing (something Bond was particularly sensitive to), was never published.
