About this book

This beautifully illustrated mini field guide is packed with information on the coastal birds of Britain and the near Continent. It covers 180 species, which are illustrated with superb full-colour artworks that show – where relevant – variations in plumage, for example for male, female and juvenile birds, and breeding and non-breeding birds. A concise written account covering size, description, voice, habitat, distribution and habits appears on the same page.

The easy-to-follow layouts and superb artworks aid quick and accurate identification, and make Bloomsbury Concise Coastal Bird Guide an indispensable reference in the field as well as at home. It is compact enough to fit in the pocket yet packed with essential information for the nature enthusiast. To protect it against the elements, Bloomsbury Concise Coastal Bird Guide is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a foldout insert illustrating such topics as variations in plumage in flying birds of different species.
