I can't tell you how brilliant this book is! It does exactly what it aims to do - tells you where to watch birds and when.

It's easy to use - you can either look up your target bird at the back and it'll tell you where to see them, or you can decide where you want to go for the day and it tells you where to park, in what types of weather, including wind direction!

The calendars at the end of each section are fantastic, especially if you're new to birding. The maps are basic but adequate.

Don't forget your packed lunch.

If you live in, or regularly visit, the North West you really need to keep this book handy. It has a fairly comprehensive list of sites with all you need to know regarding site location, a list of resident and visiting birds, and a guide as to the best times to visit. I have rated it only 4 stars out of five because the map of South Lancashire on p.119 is totally wrong and the coverage of sites in some areas is less comprehensive than in others. Notwithstanding that, I stongly recommend this book.

As someone who's fairly new to birding I've found this book to be useful in pointing me at sites that I was not aware off. As a previous reviewer points out not all the maps are correct and I can only imagine that it's a publishing error but the book is still useful despite the errors. I found the information on which birds appear at the different sites at various times of year useful. The book has certainly encourage me to explore different sites rather than just sticking to my usual haunts. If you're a beginner I would definitely recommend this book but for the experienced birder who knows the North West it may not tell you alot that you don't already know (I guess!).

good suggestions of places to see birds, with useful info on times of year,and the likelihood of seeing specific birds, factual, helpful maps and directions. A good book to keep for reference and to help decide on possible days out.
