This illustrated guide combines accurate, easy-to-follow advice for the beginner with inspirational images and expert tips for the more experienced observer. Bird author Rob Hume describes and explains all you need to know about birds, from anatomy and behaviour to how to observe and identify species in their native habitats. All the images and facts have been checked by the RSPB making this an accurate and up-to-date resource. Always putting the interests of birds first, the book also includes tried-and-tested advice on techniques and equipment. Clear, full-colour photographs and jargon-free text take you gently through the intricacies of binocular, scope, and camera selection and use, together with an insider's view of what it takes to find and identify birds in the wild. A concise bird guide then offers fact-packed profiles of the 250 species you are most likely to encounter, which is followed by an illustrated gazetteer of the top birdwatching sites in Europe, as recommended by the RSPB. The comprehensive coverage of every aspect of birdwatching should make this an ideal companion for anyone interested in exploring the birdlife of Britain and Europe.
