  • Collins BTO Guide to Rare British Birds
    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.

  • Birding Frontiers Challenge Series: Winter
    Birding Frontiers Challenge Series: Winter by Martin Garner

    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.
