FIELD GUIDE TO THE BIRDS OF BRITAIN AND IRELAND
Bibliophile price: £4.50
Published with the Wildlife Trust and with laminated soft cover if using in the field, this brilliant handbook has more than 1,000 colour illustrations for twitchers and nature lovers wanting to spot a Fulmar from a Sheerwater, a Night Jar from a Swift, a Waxwing from a Dipper, Pipits and Wagtails, Hoopoe and Bee-eaters, Finches and Buntings. The species chosen are ones you will see in the glorious variety of habitats. The descriptions are straightforward to over 280 species described and illustrated with a user-friendly text and artwork to guide you towards conclusive identification. There are measurements, notes on when and where to find the species, possible confusion species and short paragraphs full of identification tips and finally notes on the all-important calls too. Grab your binoculars, a notebook and pencil and get the most out of your hobby. For armchair twitchers, the artworks themselves are a sheer delight. Not to be confused with the Dunlin, Redshank, Wood or Buff-Breasted Sandpiper, you may hear the occasional low grunt of the Philomachus pugnax or ruff, a 12" bird whose breeding males in spring can wear a spectacular dress to attract females - a huge ruff round their necks. 208 page paperback, colour.
