Birds by Jim Flegg
This new edition incorporates both photography and artwork to provide a really practical identification guide. "Collins Gem Birds" has easy-to-use identification details linked to full-colour illustrations for over 200 European species, covering all those that most birdwatchers could expect to see in a lifetime. Each bird entry includes: its appearance, colour and distinctive features and information on juveniles, range and habitat, nests, call and breeding sites. In addition, an introduction covers general information on plumage, habitats and migration, and first-time birdwatchers are given advice on what equipment to buy and where to go to spot.
