About this book

This is the complete guide to all the birds of Britain and Europe, from tiny garden birds to large birds of prey. Whether you are a novice birdwatcher or an experienced birder, get the essential photographic reference to all European and British birds.

This large format book starts with a lavishly illustrated introduction, describing bird characteristics and behaviour. It also provides a survey of the varied habitats in which birds may be spotted, including urban parks and gardens.

The 330 most commonly seen species are given a full-page entry in the species catalogue. See birds in their natural habitat and learn about characteristic behaviour with stunning photos showing adults in typical plumage, with male, female, juvenile, and summer or winter variations to help you identify birds quickly and easily. Explore colour-coded maps highlighting resident and migratory distributions so you know which species of birds to expect when you are out and about. Descriptions of rare species and accidental visitors to Britain and Europe are also included.

The new edition of RSPB Complete Birds of Britain and Europe includes access to an audio app, which features recordings of birdsong and calls for the most commonly occurring species – so that species can be identified by sound and by sight. This replaces the audio CD that came with previous editions.
