RSPB ID Spotlight - Wetland Birds

Marianne Taylor. Illustrated by Stephen Message

Whether you are listening to a flock of geese communicate as they fly overhead or watching a group of feeding waders on an estuary, wetland birds are among the UK's most gregarious and charming waterbirds. But do you know a Coot from a Moorhen? And can you tell the difference between a Wigeon and a Pochard? The UK's wildlife-rich freshwater habitats are home to a diverse collection of our most beautiful wild bird species.

RSPB ID Spotlight Wetland Birds is a reliable fold-out chart that presents illustrations of 51 of our most widespread and familiar wetland birds by renowned artist Stephen Message.

  • Species are grouped by family and helpfully labelled to assist with identification
  • Artworks are shown side by side for quick comparison and easy reference at home or in the field
  • The reverse of the chart provides information on the habitats, behaviour, life cycles and diets of our wetland birds, as well as the conservation issues they are facing and how the RSPB is working to support them
  • Practical tips on the most suitable foods to feed ducks and other waterbirds are also included

The ID Spotlight charts help wildlife enthusiasts identify and learn more about our most common species using accurate colour illustrations and informative, accessible text. 12 pages.
