Hamlyns Guide Birds of Britain and Europe
on 31 May 2009
I was first introduced to this book as a teenager in the mid seventies, and I have found it an invaluable guide. My original copy now lives in France and so I felt I just had to invest in this new edition to keep me company here in West Sussex. The illustrations are excellent, not only do you have the summer plumage of many species but also the winter plumage which can be so so different. A must for anyone wishing to identify any bird seen, whether they be a youngster or a seasoned twitcher,it is easy to use and the distribution maps are very helpful.
