About this book

In 1996 The Ultimate Site Guide became an instant classic - for the first time in one publication, birders discovered how and where to see over 100 rarer and difficult-to-find species. These are the birds that make birding such an exciting and rewarding activity: there's nothing like the thrill of tracking and observing elusive species such as Hawfinch, Spotted Crake and Great Grey Shrike.

Now BirdGuides has re-published Lee Evans' original guide in a fully revised, updated and extended edition. The information has been carefully reviewed for accuracy and also remembering the need to protect vulnerable breeders. The species accounts have been further enhanced with more than 60 new vignettes from illustrator Ray Scally.

For each of the 142 species covered this book tells you all you need to know, including:

-where to look - up to six pages per species, detailing up to 50 sites, often including maps and grid references -when to look - detailed notes explain the best time of year for each site -how to get there - and exactly where to look within the site how good your chances are of seeing the bird at each location

Biography

Lee Evans is among Britain's best-known twitchers and one of only a small number of birders who have seen over 500 species in Britain. A keen year-lister, he aims to see well over 300 species of bird in the wild in Britain each year. He holds the UK record, achieving 386 species in 1996. Evans runs the British Birding Association and UK 400 Club. Without doubt, Lee is among the most obsessive birdwatchers in Britain, having driven over 1.8 million miles in quest of rare birds.
