Fully revised edition of this classic field guide, including 10 new colour plates, and covering a number of new species. From feathers and skulls to prey remains and pellets, this guide will enable even the lay ornithologist to establish the presence of a species without ever encountering the bird itself.
All of the authors are all experienced field ornithologists. They have produced three previous natural history books between them, concentrating on track identification and fieldwork skills. The authors are from Yorkshire, Bristol, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire respectively.
"[...] this wonderful book is a must for all birdwatchers and any of us who have picked up a feather and wondered to whom it belonged."
