Perfect for beginners in the field,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Guide to the Butterflies of Britain (Field Studies Council Occasional Publications) (Map)
This is great for IDing butterflies out in the field. Simple enough for beginners to understand, serves as a useful reminder for more experienced surveyors and highly practical for quick consultation when a butterfly flutters by!
My only complaint is that some of the illustrations are slightly misleading. A few species can appear slightly different than they do on here, leading to so confusion for first timers! I would highly recommend buying a complimentary guide such as the "Pocket Guide to the Butterflies of Great Britain and Ireland" by Richard Lewington to gain some familiarity with variability.
All-in-all though you couldn't ask for a better simple, convenient and reasonably priced guide!
