New CD for PCs and PDAs, an innovative product that has a lot of potential as a useful identification aid in the field. From the publisher's announcement: This is the most advanced multimedia reference tool available to UK birders. The program contains comprehensive illustrations and photographs of all the species of Britain and Ireland including all major plumage variations, while identification text describes age, sex and geographic variations as well as voice, status and habitats. Detailed colour-coded maps and audio recordings of typical sounds are included for each species. It also contains an identification database and a guide to birding areas from the bestselling Where to Watch Birds in Britain. The single CD-ROM is compatible with both your PC and PDA making data and bird lists transferable between the two. For PDA-only users, a pre-loaded SD-card is available with back-up PC software for down-loading lists to your PC.

Never having used an interactive multimedia bird guide before, I found this one quite addictive. Scottish Bird News "This new bird identification software was rated a Best Buy by our partner magazine 'Computing Which?'" Which? Gardening Magazine (September/October 2006)
