Bird Watching (UK) - - Gear - Paul War­ing & Martin

Townsend Blooms­bury, SB, £35, BW Book­shop £27.99 (quote BW133S)

This third edi­tion of the de­fin­i­tive guide to the moths of these is­lands has been fully re­vised to re­flect the lat­est tax­o­nomic think­ing, but its main strengths are in its 1,700 won­der­fully de­tailed coloured art­works, cover­ing 896 species of macro-moths recorded here. The dis­tri­bu­tion maps and species texts are also de­tailed and thor­ough, and a nice touch is a good gen­eral in­tro­duc­tion to iden­ti­fy­ing moths for any­one who wants to get started but finds the sheer range of species daunt­ing. Rec­om­mended for any all-round nat­u­ral­ist's book­shelf.
