This new field guide offers a complete identification reference to all of the waders found in Europe, Asia and North America. The superb illustrations show birds at rest and in flight, in every plumage variant likely to be encountered in the region. More than eighty species have been grouped, especially on the flight plates, so that similar species are shown close to each other to avoid confusion.
Facing text concisely summarises key identification pointers including appearance, voice and behaviour to aid quick identification when out-and-about. Clear, colour distribution maps are given for every species in this field-friendly guide.
