Bird Watching Guides

Mixed Flock Of Ducks

Whether you’re new to bird watching or an experienced birder, learning to identify the hundreds of species of British birds can be a challenge.

We’ve put together a comprehensive collection of identification guides covering both common residents, breeding and winter visitors, as well as rare migrants. Our guides include detailed descriptions, full colour photographs, sound recordings, and some interesting facts.

You’ll also find mini guides to birds you might find in different habitats or at different times of the year. And for those birds that are hard to tell apart, our interactive ‘spot the difference’ guides will help you learn what to look out for.
