Bwana Foster's review of the The new birdwatcher's pocket guide,
This review is from: Birdwatcher (Paperback)
Hi fellow birdwatchers,
This pocket sized guide measures 19cm high x 9cm wide. 272 pages of text and excellent colour drawings describe over 430 species of birds commonly encountered in the UK and Europe.
There are up to 12 colour illustrations per species with symbols enabling the reader to quickly identify the species. Birds groups are easily found quickly with assistance of colour coded page tabs .
This book is small, compact and will fit in all but the smallest of pockets and, whilst it is actually a paperback there is a thoughtfull plastic sleeve around the front and rear covers which keeps the book dry whilst out in the field!-other publishers take note!
The art work is stunning and is by the same artist that did a bigger book of the The birdlife of Britain.
Good value for money, informative, easy to use, fits in your pocket and it comes complete with its own raincoat!
Recommended! Enjoy, Bwana Foster.
