|Collins Complete British Animals||
Compact and useful, this combines clear photos with informative text. At the back there is a good little section on skulls and droppings too.
|Mammals of Britain and Europe (Collins Field Guide)||
Comprehensive, detailed, with clear illustrations. An essential field guide for those interested in European mammals. Not always easy to get hold of though.
|Deer Watch: A Field Guide||
For anyone with an interest in the deer that inhabit the British countryside, this wonderful book is a mine of information.
|Animal Tracks and Signs (Pocket Nature Guide S.)||
'Preben & Preben' is the benchmark book for the identification and interpretation of the tracks and sign of European animals.
|Tracks and Signs of the Birds of Britain and Europe (Helm Identification Guides)||
Very thorough and detailed. Includes tracks, droppings and feeding sign but especially good for identifying feathers and skulls.
|Collins Field Guide – Bird Nests, Eggs and Nestlings of Britain and Europe||
Quite specialised but this sometimes hard-to-find guide fills in gaps not covered in the Helm guide, especially eggs.
|Collins Bird Guide: The Most Complete Guide to the Birds of Britain and Europe||
Well laid out with very clear illustrations. My favourite field guide for birds.
|Collins Bird Songs and Calls (Book & 3 CDs)||
Many people struggle with identifying and differentiating between the sounds of different birds. This 3xCD and book combination provides a solid grounding.
