Beautiful illustrations taken from the mother-ship Classic, Roberts Birds of Southern Africa VII edition. The text is concise and to the point. The maps are informative and clear. A perfect companion when visiting the Kruger Park or Eastern low veld. The book has a laminated back making it robust and practical as a guide book. Excellent. The go-to publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars by the excellent Anthony McGeehan, 16 Sept. 2014
This book, by the excellent Anthony McGeehan, complements his previous Birds-Through Irish Eyes. It provides an opportunity for the reader, casual or specialist to discover the cleverness, adaptability and beauty of the birds around us. The writing is passionate, literate, perceptive and frequently funny. The species images are mostly taken by the author and are beautifully portrayed; the plates are clear and instructive. If you are at all interested in the birds around you this book will take your to a new level of understanding and perception.

The book also provides the opportunity to access online a wide range of call/song recordings taken by Anthony McGeehan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Photographic Guide - Birds of Southern Africa, 1 Oct. 2009
I am really enjoying this guide. Essentially it is a very clear and well laid out publication. The maps are very legible and the text information is consistent. The photographs are excellent. Generally there are usually two or more photographs of each species. It is a pleasure to read and provides a different perspective from the many admittedly high quality Southern African guides which rely on artwork, rather than photographs. Ian Sinclair (who is one of Africa's foremost field birders and who incidentally originates from Northern Ireland) and Peter Ryan have done a really excellent job with this Guide. Highly Recommended. Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars D300 Review, 18 April 2009
This review is from: Nikon D300 Body Only (Camera)
Nikon D300 Body Only

I moved from a Nikon D70 (excellent camera) to the D300, which is a much more complex camera. More thought and planning is required. It is a lot more demanding to use, which is partly why I bought it. The camera is solid and very well put together. With more experience I feel confident it (rather than me) will be deserving of five stars!! Very good product, excellent focusing system (from the D3) and very flexible programming. Another excellent Nikon product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worms its way into your affections!!, 1 Nov. 2007
This is a lovely book with quirky illustrations. All our four kids plus 2 adults read it with relish, which is in itself quite an achievement! Do yourself a favour. Beg, borrow or as a last resort even buy it!!
