About this book

This book shows how easy birdwatching can be, by improving key skills in various ways. Identification is discussed first, before more advanced topics are introduced, such as the changing of certain species appearances throughout the year. Other subjects that are explored include fieldcraft, the specialist skills that all birders need during different seasons, and details on what to do, what to look for and how to make the most of each birdwatching trip. Superb photos and artworks, many specially commissioned, accompany the text.

This book offers invaluable information, hints and tips usually only gleaned through years of experience, and very rarely found in print form.
