THE BRITISH BIRDS BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018

Combining volumes one and two, these spectacular handbooks form the most complete and comprehensive photographic guide to the passerines of the Western Palearctic.

Written by two of the world's most respected ornithologists, it contains the most up-to-date information available on bird identification covering all aspects of plumage, moult, ageing and sexing, with sections on voice and other identification criteria, and detailed taxonomic notes.

The passerines are divided into two volumes, with the first covering larks, hirundines, pipits and wagtails, bulbuls, accentors, robins, chats, wheatears, thrushes, prinias and cisticolas, and warblers, and the second covering flycatchers, reedlings, tits, nuthatches, orioles and sunbirds, shrikes, corvids, finches and buntings, along with extreme vagrants.

The exceptional text is backed up by a remarkable collection of more than 5,000 photographs, featuring a comprehensive range of plumages that illustrate every race and morph of each species in the region.

This stunning handbook will be the definitive reference for the region for years to come - no birder's shelf will be complete without it.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The bird-book publishing highlight of 2018 ... This is now the definitive passerine guide for the Western Palearctic region. - Andy Stoddart, Rare Bird Alert

It cannot be stressed enough just how much information is packed into this magnum opus. It is the new ultimate guide in Western Palearctic birding and is every bit worth the price tag. I cannot envisage that anyone who makes the investment will be left disappointed. - Josh Jones, Birdwatch

Few books have generated such a buzz before being published ... this is one of the most important and potentially influential books of this decade. Its high standards shine through every page ... A top-quality publication. - Yoav Perlman, Dutch Birding

A big book in every sense, co-authored by two juggernauts of Western Palearctic ornithology ... Destined to remain a standard-bearer well in to the future. - British Birds
