From the cover: An absorbing companion for those holidaying by the sea in Northern Europe anywhere from Britain to the Russian borders, this compact volume describes and illustrates well over eighty of the bird species most likely to be seen along that vast and varied coastline. The sixty-four full colour plates are faced by a fully comprehensive text covering not only a careful description of the birds throughout their life cycle, but also their population, distribution, breeding habits, nests and eggs, food requirements, calls and other identifying features. Where extra visual information is required a black-and-white drawing has been added to the text page. In his foreword, Robert Dougall writes: Dr Bruce Campbell is the ideal person to provide the text for this book, being not only one of Britains foremost ornithologists but also exceptionally endowed with the gift of communication When his skills are combined with the meticulous observation and superb craftsmanship of a bird artist of the calibre of Raymond Watson then you have a book of rare quality.
