Birding Frontiers Challenge Series: Winter

Birding Frontiers Challenge Series: Winter
£24.99 Add to basket


This is the second in the series, focusing on the season of winter. Most birders go out into the field knowing roughly what might be encountered in a given season and not needing all the information on all species pertaining to the whole year. So the Challenge Series continues with a number of winter 'challenges'. Over 40 challenging taxa are covered in 15 chapters, crammed with information, some of it ‘hot off the presses’. Each ID challenge is presented in a concise and accessible form with accompanying photos, illustrations, and sonograms where appropriate. The author is acutely aware that people have different learning styles. Not everyone reads books with the same ease and enthusiasm. Besides presenting pithy, easily followed displays of relevant information the author wanted the option to offer video tutorials, sound files, more photos and updates. QR codes answered that desire. With the proliferation of tablets and smart phones, much more material pertinent to each chapter plus fresh discoveries will be available on dedicated web space via the QR codes at the start of each chapter.

    Collins BTO Guide to Rare British Birds by Paul Sterry, Paul Stancliffe

    This book is the companion volume to the Collins BTO Guide to British Birds. It covers all the rare and scarce birds that have occurred in Britain and Ireland five times or more, as of February 2015.  Unlike its companion volume, distribution maps are not included, as they are of little relevance when dealing with rare and scarce birds in Britain and Ireland: by their very nature, vagrant birds can turn up almost anywhere. However, where a part of Britain or Ireland is noteworthy for the occurrence of a given species, then the region in question is mentioned in the text.
