RSPB Handbook of British Birds
Peter Holden & Tim Cleeves
Covers 270 of the most common British birds in sufficient detail to provide a complete, single source of basic information. Although field identification is fully covered, it is not the primary purpose of the book, and the informative text concentrates on topics such as breeding, behaviour, status and conservation as well as any unusual aspects of the species concerned. The text is complemented by superb artwork (some taken from Handbook of Bird Identification for Europe and the Western Palearctic), and new maps for each species. Additional, specially commissioned illustrations show interesting aspects of bird behaviour. Superb value for money.
"One of the year's best bird books."
