About this book

Unlike other guides, which have traditionally relied on paintings to represent shorebirds, this one contains an extensive series of striking photographs - most of them never published before. More than 530 colour photos illustrate all shorebird species in their varied plumages, and are accompanied by text that points out the variation within each species. The book also includes identification tips and ways to distinguish shorebirds from all similar species, at rest and in flight. Brief descriptions of voice, behaviour, habitat, and range are given for each species.

Media reviews

"[...] This is a very solid guide and would undoubtedly help anyone in the identification of this notoriously difficult group. However, The Shorebird Guide is the better option if you are limited to just one book. But with this group of birds you definitely want all the help you can get."
- Grant McCreary (09-12-2006), read the full review at The Birder's Library

"Backing dazzlingly good photography with detailed yet still portably succinct identification-focussed species accounts."
- Birdwatch (Feb 2006)

"a solid and well-researched identification reference"
- Birding (November/December 2006)
