Commencing with a few Basics, we then mover quickly on to How the Guide Works followed by a list of species included. Time spent on reading these introductory items is time well spent. All bird types are shown together commencing with the smallest (Firecrest) and working up to the larger birds with all seabirds included right at the end.
An excellent book.
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.
I love it and bout it secondhand for little more than the cost of P&P :)
VERY HAPPY with it.
I now own three copies of this book (bought 'used' for a few pence + postage) one in my camera bag, one in the car and one for spare :)
