Product information

The bestselling RSPB Handbook of British Birds is the ideal reference for birdwatchers of all levels of interest and experience.

Released to coincide with the RSPB's 125th anniversary, this new edition includes a history of the Society and a timeline of its key events.
All colour distribution maps now fully revised using data from the recently published Bird Atlas 2007-11, with information on breeding, wintering and migration.
Includes over 1,200 superb colour illustrations, as well as a new visual index to bird families on the inside covers.
Detailed text covers identification, moult patterns, habitat, range, voice, food and distribution, seasonal movements and conservation.
The 270 commonest birds in Britain and Ireland are covered in detail, followed by shorter accounts of 26 rarer species sometimes seen in Britain. Concise and up-to-date text offers a 'biography' of each species in simple, non-technical language, enhanced throughout with colour illustrations by some of the world's leading bird artists; Hilary Burn, Martin Elliott, Alan Harris, Peter Hayman, Laurel Tucker and Dan Zetterstrom.
