Media reviews

"[...] The amount of information is incredible, and all presented in an easy to use way. [...] Two DVDs accompany the guide [...] [and] greatly help to cement what is discussed in the accounts in the book but also gives the opportunity to test id features under ‘field’ conditions, and it works very well indeed. [...] Altogether a brilliant guide with a great approach to explaining how to make it a little easier to identify what can be very difficult birds indeed. If you are into seabirds you can’t live without this book."
– Paul Stancliffe, BTO book reviews
