Description

This Fixed Format comprehensive eBook is the essential companion to bird-watching for use in the field or at home. The guide features 500 species of birds found in Britain, and also includes Europe's resident birds and regular migrants and key vagrants from North America and Asia. Background information on bird structure and topography, fieldcraft, habitats, bird orders and families is provided and each species entry includes at least one full-colour illustration, beautifully presented by leading bird artists, and a full, yet concise, species description plus other details e.g. habitat, voice, length, wingspan and behavioural characteristics. A glossary of technical terms is included and there is an index of English and Latin names. The guide also includes 10 species comparison spreads, to aid identification of 'harder to spot' species and advice on the best times and places to view the more secretive or rarer birds.

  • Problems with layout

    Text expands over pictures and other content on some pages making this illegible. Not good for a book from the AA. Especially as there is so many others to consider.

    This was excellent until IOS 5. Now the first part of the book is all jumbled up! Please fix it soon.

    This field guide is so well illustrated and the layout is just like a printed book. Why can't all books look this good on the ipad...?
