A pocket-friendly photographic field guide to 280 birds of the British Isles.
RSPB Birds of the British Isles is a detailed photographic guide covering 280 species that can be seen in Britain and Ireland, from the Capercaillie to the Wren. This pocket-friendly handbook includes all regularly occurring birds in the British Isles, from familiar year-round breeding species to winter and summer migrants, as well as a selection of rarer birds.
Featuring concise identification text and expert photography, this photographic reference guide is suitable for both beginner and experienced birdwatchers alike. Species accounts include succinct descriptions of each bird's appearance, behaviour, calls and songs, and seasonal movements. The guide also identifies where to see each species and showcases this clearly through up-to-date distribution maps of the British Isles. Author and photographer Rebecca Nason has carefully chosen 300 colour photographs to illuminate key identification points, including photos of male and female birds for sexually dimorphic species.
Whether you are birdwatching in your garden or exploring wetlands, woodlands, mountains or the coast, RSPB Birds of the British Isles is an ideal companion.
