Bermuda is a fascinating group of islands in the North Atlantic. Located approximately 1,000 miles north of The Bahamas, and 600 miles off the coast of the United States, Bermuda enjoys a sub-tropical climate and a shoreline washed by crystal waters warmed by The Gulf Stream. Despite its small size and relative isolation, Bermuda is an exciting destination for birdwatchers. Although there are only 22 resident breeding bird species, the complex array of migrants and vagrants that visit the island every year have resulted in a list of nearly 360 different species. This impressive list of species ensures that there will always be something new and interesting to see in Bermuda.Written in a style that should appeal to both the serious ornithologist and those merely interested in identifying a common species seen in the garden, this guide aims to give the reader a general overview of Bermuda's birds in an easy to read and understandable format. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, the book contains full accounts of the more common species found in Bermuda, along with all the resident species, such as the legendary Cahow. Information includes detailed descriptions for males, females and immatures, identification tips and comparisons with similar, potentially confusing species, habitat preferences and the species' overall status on the island. The book also contains a full species list for Bermuda, including all confirmed species recorded for the island. This list gives the reader information on abundance ratings of each species and its year-round status on the island.

A guide to birdwatching sites in the Canary Islands: this book shows you where to go and when to visit for the best birding experience. This guide is best used alongside your field guide - it does not include information about identifying birds. This site guide provides detailed information on the best birding spots on this attractive island archipelago. Each site entry gives location and access, accommodation, birding strategy and species expected to be seen. It also includes a selective bird list giving brief details on the distribution and status of the uncommon birds which may be found, cross-referenced to site information, as well as a full species list. It includes additional useful information on planning a trip, such as travel options, climate and clothing, and health and medical facilities. This is a site guide, not an identification guide.

This publication is a compilation of current knowledge of the numbers, distribution and movements of one of the most remarkable groups of birds in the region covered by the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA). Long-term waterbird count data have been combined with an extensive literature review, especially published results of bird ringing and national bird atlases, to produce maps showing the population boundaries that are used as a basis of the conservation of these species. The maps are supported by informative species accounts that highlight the movements, population status and conservation of waders in the AEWA region.

South-East Asia is one of the richest parts of the world in terms of reptiles. The first comprehensive guide to the reptiles of this region, "A Field Guide to the Reptiles of South-East Asia" covers all the reptiles recorded from mainland South-East Asia, from Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia to Singapore and Peninsular Malaysia, as well as the islands of the Great Sundas (including Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Bali). A detailed account with key identification characteristics, habitat and behaviour is included for each species, from crocodiles, tortoises and turtles, to lizards and snakes. Every recognized species is described, and 74 magnificent specially commissioned colour plates by top wildlife artists depict nearly 700 major species in meticulous detail. Where useful, details such as plastrons (for turtles and tortoises), juveniles, variants and head patterns are also shown on the plates.
