About this book

This handy and comprehensive guide is the essential companion to bird-watching for use in the field or at home. The guide features 500 species of birds found in Britain, and also includes Europe's resident birds and regular migrants and key vagrants from North America and Asia.

Background information on bird structure and topography, fieldcraft, habitats, bird orders and families is provided and each species entry includes at least one full-colour illustration, beautifully presented by leading bird artists, and a full, yet concise, species description plus other details e.g. habitat, voice, length, wingspan and behavioural characteristics. A glossary of technical terms is included and there is an index of English and Latin names. The guide also includes 10 species comparison spreads, to aid identification of 'harder to spot' species and advice on the best times and places to view the more secretive or rarer birds.
