A Naturalist’s Guide to the Birds of Britain & Northern Europe is a photographic identification guide to the commoner birds of Britain and Northern Europe, featuring 280 species that the amateur naturalist might expect to see in the field or garden. The user-friendly introduction covers geography, climate, habits, taxonomy and nomenclature, bird topography, and the best places to watch birds, in a way that doesn’t assume prior knowledge of the subject. Includes a list of useful addresses and contacts.
