    "Not Indexed!"

    In the Audible Player this is one seamless recording with no index of species and hence almost entirely useless for practical purposes. The quality of the recordings is excellent as expected however.

    "Disappointed"

    The sound quality as a download is excellent, but has it is not indexed on Audible and you cannot switch between tracks, it is basically useless for use in the field!

    "Useful for learning to identify by call"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I wanted to learn the calls of British birds and this book is a good learning aid.


    Any additional comments?

    While it is frustrating that the bird sounds are not separated in any way I have quite happily bookmarked as I have listened so that I can go back and listen to individual calls in future.

    Story
    "Good but Not Indexed"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this to anyone who has the time to manually index the bird calls using the bookmarking feature.


    Has British Bird Sounds put you off other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    N/A


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    The sound quality is excellent but surely the purpose of this audio publication is to be able to select the bird call (200+) of your choice and listen to it - it not being indexed makes this impossible. However it is possible to manually index the title yourself using the bookmark feature on the Audible iPhone app. I would recommend this to anyone who has the time and patience to manually index the bird calls using the bookmarking feature.
