Pelagic birding is an increasingly popular pastime in both Europe and North America, with ever greater numbers of people taking boat trips offshore to see birds such as the various species of petrel, skua and shearwater. This innovative new guide, printed on waterproof paper to withstand the rigours of oceanic trips, gives annotated illustrations of every plumage of every pelagic species, including vagrants, which can be encountered in the North Atlantic, from the Caribbean and Cape Verde Islands right up to the Arctic. In total 56 species are covered, from albatrosses through to phalaropes. The book has received high praise already, with world expert on seabirds, Hadoram Shirihai, having seen the prototype in action off the US coast and declaiming about how useful such a simple, waterproof guide would be if it were to be widely available. In short, this is a must have guide for both novice and experienced birders on both sides of the Atlantic.
