Review

'Virtually every species gets a page to itself...The illustrations, by Dave Nurney, are truly excellent, lifelike and show all the key identification features. At under a fiver, this really is the best value bird book on the market.' --Countryfile (Autumn 2007)

'Well planned, well executed, and commendable cheap, this little book deserves to be a very popular beginners' guide to 174 of Britain's commonest bird species.' --IBIS (April 2008)

'Easily the best guide for the complete beginner...Brilliant' --The Observer (June 2008)

bought this for my partner, who enjoys the countryside, but never knows what the bird are that he takes photos of!! This is small and pocket size - with good categories in the front to help identify British birds. It gives descriptions of appearance and call, shows where they are generally found, and what they can be mistaken for. perfect for country walks and basic bird watching.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Richard Heath on 1 Mar. 2013
Format: Paperback
The illustrations are very detailed, which include male, female and juvenile descriptions of the particular bird you want to identify.
Full of information on where to go and what time of year you are most likely to see different species. Easy to use format. Small enough to slip in a pocket or leave in the car. Great book for anybody who, like me, wanted to identify birds visiting my garden, and when I'm out and about. Reasonable price.

This is a very good book allowing you to put a name to all the common garden birds that may visit your garden. Well worth the money paid for it.

Just right for a backpack, and contains as much information as the larger version of the book. A great product.

If you want a reference guide to take with you when out twitching can recommend this one. The colour plates aren't bad & shows the birds in flight as well as variations in plumage for M/F & seasonal variations. A bargain at £4.49 !!
