Synopsis

The Raptors of Europe and the Middle East A Handbook to Field Identification by Dick Forsman

This book presents the most complete and up to date guide to the recognition of the diurnal raptors of Europe and the Middle East yet published. It is written by an acknowledged expert, the author of many definitive identification articles and veteran of countless tours and expeditions. Over 700 high quality colour photographs have been specially chosen to show the plumages of each age and sex class of every species found in Europe and the Middle East, back up by a detailed text enabling birdwatchers to get to grips with even the most difficult species. The photographs are complemented by almost 100 drawings focussing on particular identification details, and the whole is fully referenced with a list of nearly 300 key papers and articles. This book sets a new standard for raptor watching and identification in Europe and further afield.

Reviews

'Each species is treated similarly in a feast of over 700 colour photographs. Many raptors are glimpsed only briefly or at considerable height in poor light but Mr Forsman's book should make identification possible. The new, paperback format of the most comprehensive raptor guide makes it easy to handle in the field.'
Wild Times (Autumn 2007)
