This book focuses on the 180 most common bird species which are either native to Britain or regular visitors to these shores.
Concise physical descriptions are given for each bird, both at rest and in flight, and distinctive behaviour pattens are also detailed. Articulating the voice of a particular species is fraught with difficulty, but as birdsong is often the key to identification this has also been included. The habitat for each bird is briefly described, as are nesting and breeding habits. Gloriously illustrated and with clear, succinct descriptions, this superb guide will enable amateur enthusiasts to identify each species with confidence and extend their knowledge and awareness of the rich diversity of British bird life.
