We have the 6th Edition completely revised and it's quite brilliant especially for Graham and myself identifying birds as we see both adult and juvenile markings and with the in flight wing markings and their habitat locations to pinpoint a match.

This is a fantastic book, intuitive to use and really easy to find the bird you're looking for. So satisfying to find the name of something! Why is this? I do not know. Anyway - I really recommend this.
