Publisher's Summary

Learn how to identify the voices of 50 coastal birds with this fascinating audio guide from the British Library. Species that are regularly found along the shores of the British Isles have been selected and include a range of seabirds, waders, wildfowl, and even a couple of songbirds.

Some species such as the Oystercatcher and Ringed Plover are permanent residents on the British coastline and can been seen throughout the year. Others, such as the Puffin, Storm Petrel, and Arctic Tern only return to these shores for a limited time in order to breed. For certain species such as the Knot and Turnstone, British waters offer a safe haven in which they can see out the winter before heading back to more northerly nesting grounds in the spring.

Coastal Birds presents a comprehensive collection of vocalisations that can be used during any visit to the coast. We hope that being able to identify these birds by voice will add to your enjoyment of the beautiful British coastline and the wide variety of species that can be seen and heard there. Each track includes an announcement giving the name of the species.
