An ideal pocket guide to over 180 bird species commonly found throughout Scotland.

Unlike many field guides, Collins Scottish Birds does not cover birds which only visit occasionally, or which occur in such small numbers and are so difficult to identify that only experienced birdwatchers can spot them. Instead, it concentrates on more common species that the amateur birdwatcher is most likely to see, plus a few scarcer ones of particular interest.

Species are grouped according to the habitat in which they are most likely to be seen, with a detailed introduction to all the different habitats. There are also details of key identification features and behavioural characteristics which will help you identify each bird with accuracy and ease.

  • Each species is illustrated in full colour
  • Comprehensive descriptions help you identify the birds with ease
  • Includes each bird’s English, Latin and Gaelic name
  • Features over 70 of the best sites for birdwatching in Scotland
