Autumn wildlife bundle
After the quiet of late summer, September and October mark a turning point in the birdwatching year. Garden birds come out of hiding, ducks, geese and swans are on the move, and winter migrants are returning. So we’ve chosen 3 WildID fold-out guides featuring over 100 birds for you to spot at theis exciting time.
Brand new for autumn 2023, a guide to watching waders in the real world. Waders are a distinctive group of birds with long bills and legs. They are often seen at the edge of shallow water and mud, both at the coast and inland. Our guide covers 28 waders from Britain and Ireland, from avocet and curlew to turnstone and whimbrel. Colour illustrations show both standing birds and birds in-flight. There is a fast identification key and silhouettes of each bird. Bill length, body size and bill curvature are used to quickly narrow down the species options. Additional notes help with difficult species groups, such as godwits and sandpipers.
