Petrels night and day A Sound Approach Guide

Magnus Robb & Killian Mullarney and The Sound Approach

Explore the latest frontier of European birding. Be amazed by 127 exclusive stereo recordings of 23 petrels as they electrify the night. Learn from full-colour plates, how to identify these mysterious birds as they fly past our shores. Discover for yourself how research has decrypted new species on vulnerable and secret islands. Petrels night and day illustrates the sounds with sonograms and describes the recording locations.

Listen to Zino's, Fea's, Desertas and Bulwer's Petrel, Cory's, Scopoli's and Cape Verde Shearwater, Great Shearwater, Madeiran and Boyd's Little Shearwater, Manx, Balearic and Yelkouan Shearwater, Northern Fulmar, White-faced Storm Petrel, European and Mediterranean Storm Petrel, Leach's Storm Petrel, Atlantic, Monteiro's, Madeiran and Cape Verde Storm Petrel, and Swinhoe's Storm Petrel. Learn how to identify them in daylight, when they are joined by Sooty Shearwater and Wilson's Storm Petrel from the Southern Hemisphere.

There is a series of full-colour plates and photos for birders and especially seawatchers. Many if the photos were taken at the same time as the recordings. Most importantly, read how the latest research is leading to the recognition of new European species, some of which are exceedingly rare

Be warned: this book could start a serious obsession. From the team that brought you The Sound Approach to birding , featuring the adventures of Magnus Robb, sound recordist and composer, and the identification expertise of the Collins Bird Guide illustrator Killian Mullarney. 300 pages.
