Identifying "confusion" species - those birds that have strong similarities - can be remarkably difficult. The first Macmillan Field Guide to Bird Identification broke new ground by grouping together birds that are hard to tell apart and pointing out the differences. In Birding magazine it was described as "the standard for all future bird books". This eagerly awaited new guide takes the same acclaimed approach, this time helping readers identify the European and Middle Eastern species that regularly visit Britain. The clearly written text is accompanied by 80 plates of exquisite illustrations and hand-written captions. Species covered include: petrels, herons, eagles, falcons, sandplovers, Armenian gulls, larks, warblers, redpolls and buntings.
