An introduction to an increasingly popular pastime, this title takes the reader through, in a user-friendly manner, all the basic information that he or she will need - from choosing the right field guide to selecting a suitable pair of binoculars and/or telescope. It shows you how to avoid common identification errors, demonstrates vital field techniques, illustrates the principles of basic field notes from your observations and how and when to find the birds themselves. It also considers birdwatching in your local "patch" and further afield. Bird fairs, conferences and organized trips are also covered, as is the key role that all birdwatchers can play in bird conservation.
