In this new book, the text, maps and plates of the bestselling RSPB
Handbook of British Birds have been adapted to create a brand new
book specific to Scotland and its rich birdlife. Over 250 species
are covered in detail with a page per species. The species accounts
include concise information on identification, voice, habits,
habitat, food, breeding ecology, seasonal movements, population and
conservation. Detailed maps have been specially created to show
distribution when breeding, wintering or on migration. Superb
colour illustrations from some of the world's leading artists
have been integrated into the text for easy reference.
