An indispensable field guide to the birds of the British Isles in a convenient handbook size
Up-to-date, factual and, above all, highly readable, BIRDS OF THE BRITISH ISLES is much more than a superbly illustrated field guide. From the initial introductory material on the identification, habitat, lifestyle and breeding patterns of birds in general, to the detailed studies of over 120 specific species, the book never ceases to fascinate and inform. Written by some of the best known ornithological experts under the general editorship of Dr Jim Flegg, an acknowledged authority on the subject, the text has been stunningly reinforced by the addition of over 350 colour photographs and drawings. BIRDS OF THE BRITISH ISLES is a product of thorough research and enthusiasm and will prove a valuable addition to any bird lover's library.
