Unique map which identifies the top 340 birding sites, including all RSPB reserves and additional Wildlife Trusts and Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust sites.
Each site is accurately marked to enable easy access. It gives concise details on each site from descriptions of habitat and types of bird to be found there as well as opening times and facilities, and if a reserve - best time of year to visit. On the reverse of the main map there are detailed maps of 15 major sites and information panels on many aspects of birding including a detailed list of bird observations and the major seabird colonies to be found in Britain and Ireland.
