The field guide I have been looking for
on 27 January 2011
Having just purchased this book, I can't wait for the days to lengthen and the temperatures rise so that I can go out and use it. Beautifully illustrated throughout, the book provides the key information required to spot each of the 58 species resident in Britain and Ireland, including habitat, flight period, distribution, description and behaviour. I particularly like the distribution maps for each species so that I can quickly see what I should be able to see in my area. Added to the distribution maps, the site guide provides a number of suggested places to visit and species to look out for around the country. As may be expected the site guide only provides a few places to visit for each county and will not guarantee a sighting but it's good to know where to start to look for certain species.
