Review quote

"Unrivalled as a single volume guide.It is so thorough that if you can't identify what you have seen from its pages the bird probably doesn't exist. [The authors] write with authority, flair and wit... First published in 1998, it remains fresh and relevant." Gravesend Reporter (January 2007)
