RSPB Handbook of British Birds – the best-selling guide of its kind, covering a total of 272 British species – just got even better.


This enhanced fixed-format version of the book – featuring songs and calls – is set to change birding, forever.


Optimised for tablets, it features the Handbook in crisp, clear high-resolution. Its pages contain 1,200 colour illustrations, plus seven comparison spreads, with comprehensive text on identification, habitats, food, breeding and conservation, and accurate range maps. In addition, this e-book features songs, calls and other sounds from each species, making this the ultimate one-stop resources for anyone interested in identifying and learning more about the birds they see.


This collection of images and sounds represents a step change in the way birdwatchers operate. No more carrying heavy books into the field; no more trying to remember sounds days later, while all other methods for taking sounds into the field are consigned to the dustbin.


The RSPB Handbook of British Birds e-book provides a complete field-based ID solution – no birdwatcher will want to be without it.
