Product description

Find out all there is to know about 310 of the most common birds in the UK with this lightweight pocket guide to British birds.

The guide features illustrations of species in all distinct plumage forms likely to be seen in the wild, by renowned bird artist Stephen Message. A detailed distribution map for the British Isles is also included in the guide.

Ideal for seasoned birders and newcomers to birdwatching, the guide covers behaviour and voice - focusing on key identification points - and also outlines where you can find the species, its seasonal movements and the latest UK population data. Confusion species are also cross-referenced, with their most important and easily noted differences from the subject species described.

There is comprehensive advice on how and where to find birds, and how to make the most useful and rewarding observations.

This guide also provides images and descriptions for not only a selection of rarer visitors, but also for a range of domestic species and certain commonly observed aberrant forms of more familiar birds, all of which are omitted from most field guides but can cause great confusion for beginners when encountered in the wild.

The RSPB Pocket guide to British birds is a must-read for anyone interested in the world of birdwatching.

Disappointing
Bought this as a replacement for an earlier edition (2012) . Found it rather disappointing. The illustrations are not as accurate and the accompanying information not quite as useful especially the "confusion species " section .

Difficult to find birds quickly
The order of the birds in the book appears to be totally random. They are not ordered by size or species. This is frustrating if you are trying to find a bird quickly that you do not already know. If you do know a bird the only way to find it is by using the index which is in small print and unreadable for me without glasses. This was a present I probably wouldn't have chosen it for myself for the reasons stated above but otherwise it is well presented which is why I have not declined to recommend it.
