A Naturalist's Guide to the Birds of Britain and Northern Europe
A brand new, entry level photographic identification guide to the commoner birds of Britain and Northern Europe, featuring 280 species that the amateur naturalist might expect to see in the field or garden. The user-friendly introduction covers geography, climate, habits, taxonomy and nomenclature, bird topography, and the best places to watch birds, in a way that doesn't assume prior knowledge of the subject.
