Notes

The Plate represents the bird, of the size of life, in the plumage of summer; and a young bird of the first autumn, in the state in which numerous examples are frequently to be seen, during the months of August and September, at Bognor in Sussex, the Isle of Wight, and similar places on our southern coasts.
