Where to Watch Birds in Britain by Simon Harrap
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
The beauty of this book is that it gives all the major birdwatching sites in the UK in an edition which can be taken on fieldtrips . it has a well structured format and gives quality advice and observations on each site. there is also a section on the top 100 birds in Britain and when and where to see them. This section should generate debate as some of my favourites weren't there.
my main criticism is that all of the information on Scottish sites seems to have been taken from all the already available books which deal with bird sites and I would have liked the book to have been a little more independant and perhaps include sites whch certainly merit inclusion in a book like this.

This new edition continues to give excellent value for all birdwatchers, from beginners through to seasoned experts. It's easy to use, can be taken on field trips and is packed full of interesting facts. The new sections on distinguishing waders in flight, warblers and especially the rarities section at the back are particularly useful and well thought out. I'd recommend this book to all enthusiasts of birds.
Collins Bird Guide by Lars Svensson

This paperback edition is ideal for use by both beginner and expert and is invaluable when poring over those suspect finds in the field. The book contains plenty of little nuggets of information that help clarify between similair species and the book is well laid out and easy to reference. This book will surely be the definitive field guide for decades to come.
