RSPB Birds of Britain and Europe.,
This review is from: RSPB Birds of Britain and Europe (Flexibound)
This is a fairly new book and differs from other guides such as Collins in that it uses photagraphic style images rather than sketches.
This works well and there are some sketches presumably where no photo was available.
The guide has extra useful information like flight characteristics.
It avoids the usual irratation in guides of refering one to other pages for maps, pictures etc. Very good. Best I've seen.
