A pocket-friendly photographic field guide to 290 birds of the British Isles.

RSPB Birds of the British Isles features all regularly occurring birds in Britain, Ireland and the Isle of Man, covering familiar year-round species such as Wren and Sparrowhawk, winter and summer visitors including Purple Sandpiper and Arctic Tern, and a selection of rarer birds.

Featuring concise identification text and expert photography, this photographic reference guide is suitable for both beginner and experienced birdwatchers alike. Species accounts include succinct descriptions of each bird’s appearance, behaviour, calls and songs, and seasonal movements. The guide also identifies where to see each species and showcases this clearly through up-to-date distribution maps of the British Isles. Author and photographer Rebecca Nason has carefully chosen over 500 colour photographs to illuminate key identification points, including photos of male and female birds for sexually dimorphic species.

Whether you are birdwatching in your garden or exploring wetlands, woodlands, mountains or coastlines, RSPB Birds of the British Isles is an ideal companion.
