The bestselling RSPB Handbook of British Birds is the most comprehensive reference for birdwatchers of all levels of interest and experience. Now in its fifth edition, it remains the most accessible field guide to more than 300 bird species likely to be encountered in Britain and Ireland. Alongside artworks depicting all common plumages, the detailed text describes each bird's behaviour, habitat, voice, breeding biology, longevity and seasonal movements, as well as other useful information. The guide also includes UK population trends and up-to-date distribution maps. Completely revised and updated, this fifth edition also features new artwork and comparison spreads, additional rarities and the most recent taxonomic order, as well as each species' conservation status, a summary of the threats UK species are currently facing and details of what conservationists are doing to help. A new lay-flat binding has also been used, creating easier access to the species accounts at home or in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An indispensable guide to the UK's most familiar birds and the perfect companion to exploring what nature has to offer. * Choice Magazine *
It does a job as a field guide but is more than that. It's an easy way to find out more about the birds between its covers - with sections on behaviour, habitat, voice, breeding biology, longevity and movements, population trends and conservation status. -- David Chandler * Bird Watching *
The ideal field guide for anybody who's just getting started in birdwatching. -- John Miles * Bird Watching *
Of all the various reference guides out there - and there are plenty to choose from - this authoritative book with its detailed text and useful drawings is in my opinion the most useful for birdwatchers in Britain. -- Charlie Elder, journalist and author of Few And Far Between

“Great book for bird lovers”

A high-quality book for bird lovers. Certainly a more comprehensive guide than the smaller, but more pocketable handbook. At 320 pages long, with drawings of different bird species. One suggestion for wildlife books... More
