Multimedia Identification Guide to North Atlantic Seabirds; Pterodroma Petrels
Add to basket
This identification guide on the Pterodroma petrels of the North Atlantic is the culmination of many years of at-sea observations by the authors. It is the second in what is planned to be a four-part series on regular and vagrant bird species of the North Atlantic. Amongst the species and taxa covered are the Trindade Petrel, Kermadee Petrel, Atlantic Petrel, Great-winged Petrel, Bermuda Petrel, Black-capped Petrel, Soft-plumaged Petrel, Cape Verde (Fea's) Petrel, Desertas (Fea's) Petrel, and Zino's Petrel.
The book is accompanied by 2 DVDs with 130 minutes of both at-sea footage and, for some species, in-hand and at-colony footage. The DVDs follow the contents of the book, allowing cross-referencing, and form an excellent preparation for a sea watch or a pelagic trip.

Seabirds are the living links between land, air and sea. They enjoy a freedom that even humans, with all our technological assistance, can barely imagine. The author presents detailed biographies of all the seabird species that breed in and around the British Isles, and also looks at the many species that breed elsewhere but which, regularly or occasionally, visit British waters.
