Media reviews

"This is a fantastic piece of work [...] [It] manages to cram a huge amount of information in the pages without it feeling too cluttered or overwhelming. The text is concise but thorough enough to help with identification [...] this is a must have for new and seasoned birders alike."
– Scott Mayson, British Trust for Ornithology

"The book is packed with quality colour photographs, no mean feat to gather so many images together for one book, with at least two images per species sometimes more [...] this a great pocket guide to British Birds and I would certainly recommend it to anyone getting into birds and birdwatching."
– Alan Davies, BirdwatchingTrips

"Well thought out and structured to assist the reader [...] another one of the top quality bargain books we have come to expect from Princeton's WildGuides series."
– Phil Slade, Another Bird Blog

"The best bird identification guide I have seen, ever."
– Jim Williams, Star Tribune

"These carefully curated photographs are the conclusive answer to any who said that photos cannot illustrate identification features [...] It is a treasure trove: the pages pack in a wealth of images."
– Thomas Wingfield, London Naturalist
