As many ornithologists are already aware, a new edition of "A Practical Handbook of British Birds" has been for some time in preparation. We should be very grateful to any of your readers who would now send us notes of any omissions or errors in the original work, and of any unpublished observations which would make the work more accurate and complete. Should secrecy in regard to locality be necessary, this will be rigidly respected.
