I've had this book since 1970. It is difficult to use being that the info on each species is spread out among 3 separate pages. I do use it because it gives the names of each bird in Dutch, German, French and Swedish.

Not my favorite European field guide. It suffers from some of the issues common to the Peterson guides - maps at the end of the book, which is just a big pain as far as I'm concerned. I'd recommend the Collins book (and a few others before this one, too). ( )

Even after over 20 years this field guide is still the most indispensable book around for birding in the U.K. and Western Europe. ( )
