WATCHING WATERBIRDS - KATE HUMBLE & MARTIN McGILL
This WWT publication was one of the choices to select from as a free book when signing up for annual membership that is paid by direct debit. I was interested in learning more about wetland birdlife, so chose it from among the options.
Along with color photos and text, you will find a map showing where and when various waterbirds are likely to be seen in the UK. The wingspan is also shown, as is the scientific name of each of the various birds.
So that readers can actively participate in bird watching, a score and chart are provided in order to keep track of the birds that you yourself spot. The text covers the basics of identification with added information. There are also tips and a quiz at intervals throughout the book.
