The Pocket Guide to the Common Birds of Ireland

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, this beautifully detailed field guide to the common birds of Ireland will give invaluable advice on how to identify each species: their calls, songs, diets and habitats, as well as up-to-date distribution maps of each species.

Eric Dempsey’s text covers all the important bird identification features, while the superb illustrations of over 200 bird species by Michael O’Clery highlight these features in lifelike detail.

This long-awaited new edition reflects the changes that have occurred in the distribution and breeding status of Ireland’s common birds as well as including species once considered rare but which are now more regularly seen.

This is an ideal companion to the Complete Field Guide to Ireland’s Birds.
