About this book

An ideal pocket guide to over 180 bird species commonly found throughout Scotland. Unlike many field guides, `Collins Scottish Birds' does not cover birds which only visit occasionally, or which occur in such small numbers and are so difficult to identify that only experienced birdwatchers can spot them. Instead, it concentrates on more common species that the amateur birdwatcher is most likely to see, plus a few scarcer ones of particular interest.

Species are grouped according to the habitat in which they are most likely to be seen, with a detailed introduction to all the different habitats. There are also details of key identification features and behavioural characteristics which will help you identify each bird with accuracy and ease.

Each entry includes:

*Full-colour illustration
*Common name and Latin and Gaelic name
*The season in which the bird is likely to be spotted
*Details on habitat, feeding habits and voice

The book also includes up-to-date details about places of interest and the best sites to go for birdwatching, with maps and contact information to help you get there.

This book is a re-issue of Collins Guide to Scottish Birds (2005 edition).
