The ideal portable companion, the world-renowned Collins Gem series returns with a fresh new look and updated material.
This is the perfect pocket guide for keen birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts to identify the most commonly seen species in Britain and Europe.

In addition, an extensive introduction covers general information on plumage, habitats and migration, and gives first-time birdwatchers advice on what equipment to buy and where to go to spot the most desirable species.
This new edition builds on the strengths of the unrivalled original, covering over 200 species of bird found in Britain and Europe.
