Autumn wildlife bundle
After the quiet of late summer, September and October marks a turning point in the birdwatching year. Garden birds come out of hiding, ducks, geese and swans are on the move, and soon the first winter migrants will be returning. We’ve chosen 3 fold-out guides featuring over 100 birds for you to spot this autumn and winter. Learn how to identify birds you see this autumn using our beautiful fold out guides and charts.
Park and garden birds guide
Is that a chaffinch, greenfinch or bullfinch at the bird feeder? Can you tell apart a song thrush from a mistle thrush? Covering the top 50 birds seen in parks and gardens, including ponds and rivers. Designed for speedy bird identification with living birds in the garden, the guide features beautiful colour paintings by Chris Shields. Accompanying text on the reverse side covers body size, food, key identification notes and conservation status.
Ducks, geese and swans guide
Visiting a wetland reserve? Covering all 32 wild waterfowl in Britain including dabbling ducks, diving ducks, sawbills, swans and wild geese. Especially suitable for winter wildlife watching. Designed for use outside, this laminated fold-out guide features beautiful colour paintings by leading bird artist Mike Langman. For rapid identification, we have grouped the paintings by dabbling ducks, diving ducks, sawbills, swans and geese. Also included are different forms for males, females and juveniles where appropriate.
Birds of prey guide
From buzzards to harriers and falcons to eagles: this guide features all 15 day-flying raptor species that breed in the UK. Co-created with the Hawk and Owl Trust. Birds of prey can be highly variable and your view of the bird may be fleeting. But by looking at pictures side-by-side you can generally narrow down the choice to two or three species. To help confirm raptor identification, we have included particular features to look out for. For each bird these include size, habitat, range, flight pattern and possible confusion species.
Our popular wildlife field guides measure 24.5cmx17.5cm and are extremely lightweight so are the perfect identification aid for popping in your bag when heading outside. All wildlife identification guides are laminated, meaning they are showerproof for use outside and can be wiped clean.
