This is an up­dated edi­tion of a pop­u­lar lit­tle book brought out in 2004 and pre­vi­ously printed by New Hol­land. The old ver­sion was struc­tured around habi­tats, al­ways dif­fi­cult when so many species ac­tu­ally use a va­ri­ety. This ver­sion cov­ers 280 species with an im­pres­sive 1,000 draw­ings by David Daly. It is a quick-fire guide – pos­si­ble con­fu­sion species are given for quick com­par­isons, and there are key ID fea­tures high­lighted on the pic­tures. There’s also a glos­sary and tick-list to help you. This is a handy lit­tle book, for begin­ners in par­tic­u­lar, and one that I am sure will be well used. John Miles
