There are many superb bird guides on the market and your choice will depend on personal taste, and level of experience. Many birders regard the Collins Bird Guide are most comprehensive. However, it is rather too large and heavy to go in your pocket, especially if you simply want an identification guide. It's illustrations are also drawings, rather than photographs, which is not everyone's preference.

This book is, in my view, the very best pocket guide to British birds available. At less than a third of the weight of the Collins guide, it still packs a wealth of detail. It has the brilliantly clear photographic illustrations you expect from D & K, and is divided into logical sections which makes it intuitive to use, and helps you identify species quickly. Every bird you are likely to see in Britain (and much of Northern Europe) is included.

Better still it always seems to sell for a ridiculously low price !

Quality photos of Britain's(and Europe's) bird life well illustrated and written pocket book a good reference guide, even for our garden wildlife especially when you take a photo and cannot remember the name of this little creature that visits us for food in winter.

Great little book packed with information and pictures - the 'look inside' thing doesn't really do it justice. Being so narrow though it require some pulling to part the pages when reading and that concerns me that over time it may start to come apart.

This is a good reference book to have, without being too detailed, it enables you to identify the various visitors to the countryside or garden. Great value for money

As the title refers to "Europe" as distinct from "Northern Europe", I purchased this book prior to a visit to the Algarve - it proved woefully inadequate. Local specialities such as Purple Swamphen, Azure-winged Magpie, Glossy Ibis, Audouin's Gull and Slender-billed Gull are all missing. It may be adequate elsewhere but not in southern Portugal.

As excellent as ever - a must for bird watchers - really does fit into your pocket plus survives the elements.
