The checklist contains 64 pages and provides an introductory brief history and background to the reservoir which serves as a useful guide to its facilities and the opportunities it provides for birding but the main part provides a list of all 250 species of bird seen at the reservoir up to 31st December 2020 including no less than 12 National Rarities.

Each species listed has its own short account and for all scarce and rare birds a comprehensive list of all sightings for each species is shown. There are also over 100 full colour photos to accompany the text.

For any birder visiting Farmoor it provides an essential reference to the birds that have and can be seen at the reservoir.
